Interesting.  I've been running pan on kde for well over a decade now.  
Currently I'm running both kde-frameworks/plasma/apps and pan (built 
against gtk2) from live-git, updated weekly or so (with an update just 
finished but not yet rebooted or X/plasma restarted yet).

If pan was crashing I'd be complaining loudly and git-bisecting and/or 
reverting the latest libs updates.  It's not.

Tho FWIW I don't build with gkr or similar.  AFAIK there's a known 
problem with gtk2-based apps and at least recent gtk3 gnome-keyring.  But 
I run very little gtk3-based and don't have gnome-keyring of any sort 
installed, thus my choice to build without it.  And because I don't have 
it installed, while I remember reading about the problem somewhere, I 
don't remember the details, or even where I read it, tho it was probably 
either here or in the gentoo general or kde-overlay git logs.

So it's certainly /possible/ to run a gtk2-based pan on kde, without the 
crashing mentioned in that bug.
