I'm trying to record a reading of my just-published novel... and I'm 
underwhelmed. In KDE, I select multimedia->audacity, and it crashes. I 
can get it to run from a command line, but if I try to start "new", it 
crashes. When I was testing, and got the correct mike, then wanted to 
delete what I'd done and actually start, it crashes.

This is as installed, nothing odd.

Recommendations (other than reinstall)?
