Ok, this can happen
Comment 2 Jan Binder 2013-03-01 12:36:30 UTC
Ok, this happens once per freshly added kickoff widget.
When I click the widget, the plasma-style kickoff menu is shown for a second or two and then kwin crashes.
After that, the widget does not work any more, as in "the menu does not show when clicking".

Sorry for the bug report editing spam.
Comment 3 Martin Flöser 2013-03-01 13:47:41 UTC
chain.last() without checking whether the chain is empty. Yeah not surprising that assert. I assume you can easily try a patch?

The attached patch fixes the crash for me.
