I can confirm the crash.

Note that, removing wikipedia applet works around the crash.

And they just fixed the mp3 seeking problem with GStreamer...

I confirm the behavior indicated by Gustaw. By removing the plug from wikipedia, the crash disappears.

debfx will update qtwebkit which has a fix for this. I don't believe amarok needs to be patched, so marking invalid.
