I'm writing these words in form named "Long Description in English (*)". I use Konqueror. Now, while writing I want to change some text in this bug report to another. What will I do? I'll select unwanted text and write sth. other there. And here is the problem.

Selecting text in this or some other forms ("post reply" on forums for example) freezes Konqueror. I've observed that it's something related to Klipper. When Klipper is running as a standard Kicker's applet, while text selecting, Klipper will freeze with Konqueror and Kicker. You may close Klipper and see that without it, everything is working fine.

So, turn off all Klipper instances. Run Klipper as stand alone application (alt+F2, klipper). Now, if you'll try to select some text in this field, Konqueror will freeze. Klipper will freeze too, but now you can see it more clearly: after selecting a text within Konqueror, hide and unhide Kicker. After that you will see free space instead Klipper's icon.

I've done writing but now, when this bug report is longer than it was a few minutes ago, Konqueror doesn't want to freeze. So this bug might be a little difficult to reproduce.

Thanks, and sorry for my English :). I'll help you to solve this problem as I can, just tell me, what should I do.

No solution. You have to patch Qt.
