konqueror intervenes and crashes

Greetings. I have a hyperlink in an OpenOffice spreadsheet to a .wav file.

On Windows and Linux (non-kde), the hyperlink results in the .wav file playing or a player being opened. I'm not sure which but users of each tell me that the hyperlink works.

In Kde (Mandriva 2006), Konqueror sticks its beak in, then crashes. Backtrace is:


This backtrace appears to be of no use.
This is probably because your packages are built in a way which prevents creation of proper backtraces, or the stack frame was seriously corrupted in the crash.

(no debugging symbols found)
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/tls/".

This is what ticks me off about Kde: Konqueror is so embedded in the system that clicking on links which have nothing to do with the file browser is likely to provoke some unhelpful response from Konqueror.

Can anyone suggest a remedy? I've tried adding %u to the command line in the first player associated with .wav files and that has made no difference.
