My last three clear nights have been cut short while I slept by what appear to be random crashes of KStars 3.5.4 on ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS (miniPC not Pi).

I know that there's a bunch of detective work that's possible for random crashes, involving running in the debugger and analyzing logs.

I also know that my crashes don't involve the FITS viewer, which I've disabled.

Maybe I will embark on the detective game, but wow. This is dispiriting. Everything appears to be running really well and then out of nowhere POW. No more KStars.

I wake up in the morning with all the equipment on and the mount tracking and nobody home to collect the data. Over and over.
