In my case, KNode 0.7.2 crashed only 2 or 3 times in the past 1.5 years
(around 3,500 outgoing messages). It is my most stable application. While
it doesn't help you solve your problem, it can be used as evidence of
stability, which might provide with better re-assurance in the future. I
use SuSE 8.2.

Crashes are most frustrating if you are in the midst of composing a message.
Consider yourself fortunate.

You can try to describe what you did before the crash, e.g. "I was quickly
shifting between one newsgroup to another". If the crashes recur
frequently, run KNode from the command line and see if a description of the
error gets shown upon crashing.
There may be some log files too, but I am not sure what their location would
be. ~/.kde/share/apps/knode/ would be a good location to look at for a
Hope it helps,
