Unfortunately, this backtrace is not much use, and the information it contains 
is mostly rubbish.

I've been using the NVidia drivers since the day they were released, and I've 
never seen a KDE crash that could be attributed to them. That's multiple 
versions of -STABLE and multiple versions of KDE, everything from 3.0.x to 
KDE CVS.    I have seen twice X crash entirely (and in fact, spontaneously 
reboot the machine) apparently from the nvidia drivers, but in both those 
cases I was playing movies via the tv-out port, and there was no window 
manager or desktop environment running at all.  Just X, an xterm, and 
mplayer.  If there's a bad interaction with KDE and the nvidia binary 
drivers, it apparently isn't affecting all nvidia based cards, making it 
pretty hard to work on unfortunately :(.

To try:
Does the problem go away entirely if you use the nv drivers?
Does the problem go away if you switch to the "kde-classic" window decoration 
in KDE?

You'll also probably get more input by asking on [EMAIL PROTECTED]
