Well, now I can get GTK-Emacs to segfault again :-).  I noticed that
the desktop fonts didn't look as sharp as they normally do (it took me
a while to notice this, probably because the fonts in Emacs are always
not so sharp :-), so I ran fc-cache, exited KDE and logged on again.
Now my desktop fonts are back to their previous sharpness, but
Emacs-GTK segfaults again with the standard invocation (but I can
start it by setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/local/lib).  So if someone
is able to advise me how to debug this, I can try to do it.
