Description Omid Mo'menzadeh 2013-04-23 20:38:29 UTC
It might be a non-handled infinite loop. if you map:
h to k
j to h
k to j
Kate will eat up some memory and crash after using any of these keys.
(These are not random mappings, they are actually useful if you are using Colemak keyboard layout).
In Vim, there is noremap(instead of map), which does not allow k -> j -> h being mapped and looped.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enable Vi mode
2.Add these mappings:
h to k
j to h
k to j
3.Add some text and go to normal mode.
4.Try navigating with any of the h, j, or k keys.
Actual Results:  
Kate crashed.

Expected Results:  
Navigation through the file.

The crash does not launch the KDE's crash info window, but here is the log printed to the console:
QDBusConnection: session D-Bus connection created before QCoreApplication. Application may misbehave.
