I can't use ktp-text-ui anymore. When I try to launch a chat, the toolbar appears, but the the rest of the window stays grey, but everything hangs. After a while the contents appear and I can check previous messages, but the input field stays grey and I can't talk to my contact. If I then klick on another contact, that contact's window will immediately appear tabbed and I can talk to that contact. The one I opened first still wouldn't work, I have to close it and reopen. If I close ktp-text-ui and try to open it again, the same problem will occur.
If anyone could tell me how to launch ktp-text-ui from the command line, that would help a lot for debugging.
The problem occured only recently, after I experimented with kde 5, but it's possible that a previous update caused the issue. I only restart my computer every couple of days, sometimes even weeks, so any changes may have gone undetected.
I'm using 0.8.1 of kde telepathy and stable kde4. I'm also using abi_x86_32 for 32bit libraries, which causes me to use unstable versions of some packages, one of them being gnutls (currently 3.2.11), which I suspected to be the problem but it turned out it isn't.
The only protocol I'm using is XMPP.
I tried rebuilding all of telepathy, kde-telepathy and dbus, with no success. When I try to launch ktp-text-ui or kill it (it won't close by itself in the hanging phase in the beginning), I'm getting the notification "org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Error.NotAvailable: Handler no longer available", which to my understanding just means that ktp-text-ui isn't working. Looking for that message turned up several results with different solutions none of which worked.

edit: interestingly, during the time ktp-text-ui hangs, other kde applications won't start. And I just found out that deactivating dbusmenu fixes the issue. Sorry, this happens to me every time. I'm looking for a problem for hours and once I opened a thread about it, I'm getting closer to the solution by myself. I will look into it and hopefully post a solution here.

edit2: ok, the problem was libdbusmenu-qt-9999. Downgrading to stable fixed the issue for me.
