I like the idea, I have krunner crashing every so often, but usually it manages to restart, so I never look into that. Getting a backtrace would make fixing it much more likely.

which might have been what David was referring to

Yeah, it was.
I'd like us to find a way to make that behaviour choosing explicit not inferred from restart behaviour as it's something that affects other cases.

This can still go in though.
