I have seen a similar crash with version 0.91.0 on amd64 when launching
Mozilla or Thunderbird. I believe it had something to do with invalid
window sizes.

I have not encountered the problem with kplayer, but have found
windowmaker-0.91.0 to break qt applications in general. See the details in
this PR:

It seems I am the only one to have this particular problem though...

Do you have a link for this patch ? Windowmaker cvs server seems to be
broken at this moment.

Sorry not to be of much help.
