I've rebuilt qt5, kf5, and plasma5 in debug mode and run gdb against 
krunner.  About the only thing I can say is that the segfault happens 
deep in qt5, although I think it's a kde problem.

I could back up to 5.4.0 and test it, but I'm reluctant to do that for 
blfs-7.8.  It just seems to fragile.

My best solution for now is to remove plasma5 from blfs and say that it 
is not stable enough to put in the book.  As soon as 7.8 is released, we 
can put what I have now back into -dev.

Fernando, Ken, any objections?
