KWiFimanager NFG again!!!

I've recently installed SuSE 9.3 on my ThinkPad. And for the fourth
time, KWifimanager doesn't work (it also didn't work in 9.0, 9.1 & 9.2).
This time, when starting it, I get the error message

"KCrash: Application 'kwifimanager' crashing...
*** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption (fast): 0x0819cde1 ***
Unable to start Dr. Konqi"

Also, the Wifi config panel in the Control Center, which uses the same
config screen as kwifimanager can now save, but has absolutely no effect
on the wifi configuration. It apparently saves the info to
/root/.kde/share/config/kcmwifirc, but the wifi config is stored in
/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-wlan-id-00\:20\:e0\:8a\:a6\:ce. There
appears to be no mechanism to effect the changes.

Is there any way to get this to work as intended?

Why, after all this time and at least four versions, can't KDE & SuSE
make something that works???
