That was it.  Apparently when KDE tells a GTK+ program to use the "Nuvola" 
theme, the GTK+ program freaks out and crashes.  When I changed it to use 
the "Mist" theme, everything started working again.

I'm sure that there are other themes that will cause crashes under these 
circumstances, but at the moment I'm just glad that everything is working 
again.  I may investigate further tomorrow, if I have time.
