Kontact often crashes when switching to another tab. How best to create a useful bug report?

Bas G. Roufs - in English
Hello Everybody.

Kontact at Kubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial) still has some points of attention.
Here, I deal with just one of them. The package often crashes when switching
from the list of e-mails to another tab. Especially a switch to Contacts,
Calendar or To-Do ends up in a crash. Is there any fix or workaround?

At present, my laptop is running on a 32 bits version of Kubuntu 16.04 LTS
along with KDE Plasma 5.8.4. My laptop is an old Asus Eee PC 1001 HA, with 2
processors of 1.6 Ghz each, 2 GiB RAM. It works with a new 500 GB SSD (Samsung
Evo).

For debugging purposes, I have started Kontact from the terminal. Below, I
share with you just a short version of a huge output file:

bas@Viaconsensus-transit:~$ kontact

(.....snip .....)

At this point, the package starts. However, the upper part of the terminal
report is not any more visible. The first about 1000 lines that are still
visible, start like this:

(Last line of the terminal output report.)

At this point, the process stopped all together.
Let me know please, whether this info is useful for a bug report. Is there
anything else I need to look at when creating this report?

Yours.
