Kopete crashes everytime it is opened

I am running Mandriva 2006 with KDE 3.4 (which contains Kopete 0.10.3). Whenever I start the program, it is fine, unless I send an IM to someone. If I start typing, the program just crashes. If I wait around a minute or two, it is fine. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling but to no avail. Does anyone have this problem or know how to fix it? This happens as both root and regular user, as I've read it has to do with permission problems, but it happens under both accounts.

Thanks for the reply heema. I ran it in the terminal, and I have no clue what the output means, so it can be found below. Again, this is what happens when I open it and immediately start typing a message to anyone:

$ kopete
