From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
The Symbol Viewer plugin crashes kate.  The crash will happen every time a session is saved in which the plugin is active, or when kate exits if kate is set to save the session on exit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Kate
2. Activate the Symbol Viewer
3. Save the current session

Actual Results:
Kate crashes when trying to save the session.  The updated session is not saved.  That is, when you restart kate, the Symbol Viewer plugin is not active.

Expected Results:
It should save the session.

Additional info:
If you save a session with a modified file, the edits are lost due to the crash.

Per upstream report http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=156559 this is a known
issue and has been corrected in 4.1.  Thanks for the report.
Comment 2 Ian Laurie 2008-06-22 20:58:45 EDT
Will the fix be released as a fedora 9 update?

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-22 21:01:21 EDT
The plan is to release 4.1 as a F9 update once it's released, maybe we'll push 
a backported fix sooner.
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-23 01:12:39 EDT
What bugs me is that that fix is 4 months old and was never backported to 4.0, 
somehow the upstream process is broken there. :-/
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-06-23 01:15:26 EDT
Backporting fix.
