Here is the crash report file. I got a few crashes like this, seems the same.

Do you have notifications set to be popup-only notifications, as in this screenshot?

Jonathan Thomas (echidnaman) wrote :

Er, to clarify, do you have the third option under "Notification Type" checked? I think that the crash is with that configuration.

Yes, option no.3 was checked
(sorry for that i answered so late)

Cool, thanks. I've made a fix for this for Kubuntu 11.10, and I'll try to get a patch in to 11.04 as well.

In the meantime, you can work around this crash by choosing any other option than option 3, since it is the only mode that is bugged.

  [ Jonathan Thomas ]
  * Check the result of QApt Batch in InstallEvent before we triumphantly
    declare success. (LP: #745133)
  * Make sure to initialize the KStatusNotifierItem object's pointer with 0,
    otherwise crashes will occur when trying to delete it due to the undefinied
    behavior of accessing an un-initialized pointer. Fixes a crash that occurs
    when k-n-h is configured to show only popup icons. (LP: #780718)
  * Use HIG-compliant labels for radio buttons. (No double negatives)

  [ Harald Sitter ]
  * Properly KProcess DisplayIf hook conditions as shell commands.
    Trying to evaluate a complex expression as program will make the process
    die and return as zombie! OMG! (LP: #515138)
  * If a hook is not valid and a notification is not required schedule the
    hook for deletion via event loop to save memory.
  * Use QLatin1String when useful in HookEvent
  * In unused distupgradevent do not leak KProcess on availability checks.
  * Nice fact about KProcess... when starting detached you can actually
    throw away the KProcess right away (or reuse it). Consequently do not
    heap the KProcess for terminal Hook invocation, but keep it on the stack.
  * Bump standards version to 3.9.2
