(a) My personal view:  When software shows such strong signs for a buffer
overflow and thus with very high likelihood allows execution of arbitrary
code, I uninstall it immediately from every production system I am
responsible for.  Any usage outside of sandbox jails is unthinkable.
Currently I cannot spare time or resources for setting up a virtual machine
just to debug kaffeine.
(b)  I tried KDE_4.2.1, found many bugs and apart from okular nothing useful
for my needs.  I will stick to KDE_3.5.x at least as long as it is maintained.

In short:
(A)  I won't provide more info.  Sorry.
(B)  The issue seems to be confirmed by a very similar bugreport:
