After installing the KDE upgrade as per http://www.suse.com/us/private/download/linuks/i386/update_for_8_0/index.htm... certain apps crash.
For example find files
the Crash Handler dump says:

Similar output is given when some apps like package manager encounter a problem such as a zero result for a search.
But the worst of the problem is that Yast2 will not start. The sand clock revolves for a while .......then nothing.
I first noticed that Yast2 was sick when I was going to reinstall webcam apps which would not load. i.e. the KDE 303 upgrade did something to the webcam (video) apps.
Since Qt3 looks to be involved I installed it again and the option Qt3 stuff , to be sure. But it has not helped.
Main apps such as StarOffice, QCad, Mozilla, Digikam are OK
I will post this Suse-kde list. ....... After a quick look ....it seems that KDE 3.0.3 is now old.
1) to stop the crashes
2) regain "lost" apps like Yast2
