what about
`strace yast2 2>/logfile` ?

or using gdb

This is harder. I downloaded the three debug packages referenced on that page.
Then I run

openSUSE_machine:~ # gdb /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base

and get this:

The web page you referenced suggests running some module. At random, I did

(gdb) run repositories qt

And it spewed several pages of "Missing separate debuginfo". Finally, it did

Program received signal SIGFPE, Arithmetic exception.

0xb5b0071d in ?? () from /usr/lib/

If you want me to install all those debug packages, I may want to try
installing openSUSE into a VM, since I don't really want to perturb the system
with a hundred new packages. Is it needed?
