11.2m2: Kontact startup weirdness

Kontact will not start when selected from either of its three (that I’ve
found) appearances in the Kickoff menu. However, it will start from Calendar
(Korganizer) - after saying Kontact had crashed last time.

I’ve also tried starting it from the Classic menu but it also fails.

Kontact starts successfully when started from the command line - although
the command is just the same as that used in the menus.

More info: Running Kontact from the Kickoff or Classic Menus works after a
successful command-line start. Starting from the command line can also
fail if no other successful start has occurred during a session. Entering
“kontact” on the command line just results in a new prompt with no
messages.

If Korganizer is kicked off before a successful run, the crash warning for
Kontact will appear. If an attempt is made to process this, the Korganizer
will start but otherwise Kontact will start.
