Okular crashes when opening .pdf file


Since I installed Slackware 13.37 I'm having problems with Okular. Whenever you open a .pdf file, it crashes immediately.
Opening other file formats works fine.
The problem exists on one machine, the other one (also SW 13.37) has no problems with this.

adri@Slackware:~$ okular /home/adri/OverzichtPerceelsregistratie_10-08-2009.pdf
okular(28629)/kdecore (KConfigSkeleton) KCoreConfigSkeleton::writeConfig:
okular(28629)/kdecore (KConfigSkeleton) KCoreConfigSkeleton::writeConfig:
okular(28629)/kdecore (KConfigSkeleton) KCoreConfigSkeleton::writeConfig:
KCrash: Application 'okular' crashing...
KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/drkonqi from kdeinit

[1]+  Gepauzeerd              okular /home/adri/OverzichtPerceelsregistratie_10-08-2009.pdf
This practically happens always. There are however a few .pdf files that don't crash Okular...

adri@Slackware:~$ okular /home/adri/Opgave.pdf

Anyone an idea?

Are the two systems identical (software and hardware?), and is this a fresh install? Although very unlikely, there could be a bug triggered in the video driver. But I would first try to reinstall the KDE packages, maybe the binary is corrupt.

Ilgar, thanks for the reply and sorry I didn't answer sooner (busy, busy).

The two systems are equal on software, not on hardware (AMD Athlon vs. P4).
Both had fresh installs (full install). Reinstalling KDE didn't solve the problem.
For the time being, I installed epdfview (from SBo) and am quite happy with it (small, smooth and fast: just what I like - always hated xpdf...).
So my problem is -sort of- solved.
Maybe, with the next SW installation, I'll look into Okular again.
