Workaround: create debian sid choot with debootstrap. Install kdenlive 0.7.5 for Debian and everything works fine!!!

note: I've never used Video Editing software but I was able to create with little effort my first video with kdenlive after viewing a couple of tutorials on the website! Great peace of software...and great that's it's free!
Additional InformationI've been testing with kdenlive 0.7.3 and 0.7.4, and 0.7.5 unstable ubuntu pakages found on the forum and the same problem exits in these version.

Please start by removing the 0.3.8 version of MLT, it will conflict with the 0.4.4 version. Then, try to delete you file:

and restart kdenlive. If it is still the same, you should remove the pulseaudio server which breaks Kdenlive, as reported by several users.

- libmlt-0.3.8 was already not on my system ( I mistakenly added it to the list of installed softeware in this bugreport ).
- pulseaudio indeed breaks kdenlive and lot of other stuff as well, so pulsaudio was already not present ( renamed the binary; removing package is not advised, because it depends on the ubuntu-desktop package, which is used for proper ubuntu upgrades )

Removed $HOME/.kde/share/config/kdenliverc, but unfortunately problem persists. I have a 64 bit laptop now, and kdenlive works great. If you suspect this bug is not seen by lot of other Ubuntu users, and/or not worth investigating, you could close the bug. I have my old Ubuntu laptop still around so, if you want to investigate, I can help testing stuff or giving additional info.

Thanks so far.

I decided to remove the pulseaudio package (and not just renaming the pulseaudio binary), since I'm not going to use the laptop anymore crashes anymore!!!

I had problems with Pulseaudio too.
Using Xubuntu Jaunty.
Kdenlive reacts with a crash when Pulseaudio is not correctly configured (Pulseaudio was not working right) and/or some packages are not installed.

I got a hint with the command "pulseaudio" in the terminal.
I described it in the issue 1117.

Precision: with other programs the sound was working. So I don't know really why it is so, and today I solved the problem as described in the issue 1117.
