Sure. All I did was select a group of cells with the mouse. Then, 
left-click on the group and hold while moving the mouse to shift the 
selected cells to another location. In 3.4.4, Calc crashed as soon as I 
attempted the last step. Every time. After libreoffice-kde was removed, 
it didn't crash anymore.

I read online where other crashes occurred with 3.4.4, and maybe 3.4.5, 
under different circumstances in other distros, and removing 
libreoffice-kde eliminated them, but I don't remember specifics now.
