Ok, I can't contribute this to anything I've ever encountered or something that I'm doing, but it seems that after about 7-10 days KDE just dies on me. No crash, no errors, no "I'm gonna shut down". Nothing. I will be working along and then suddenly it's just not there.
Even the logs show nothing. No core dumps, no memory errors, not even an Xwindows shutting down message.
I had this happen to me today. I clicked on a link in konq, the drive started spinning and everything else locked up. A few minutes later X died and I was back at the kdm screen. I found this in /var/log/messages ...

I guess it's a good thing that X gets killed instead of having to reboot, but...
aagh! There must have been some other process causing the problem.
