Software Environment: gcc-4.1 Xorg 7.0
Problem Description: more X erros and unrannable programs

Steps to reproduce:

1. start gdm
2. start kde-3.5.5
3  start amarok or other multimedia program
4. wait ~2hours
5. crashed the kde-enviroment
Comment 1 Diego Calleja 2007-03-09 13:27:22 UTC
Is there any error message left in your dmesg after crashing kde? This looks
like a kde bug
Comment 2 Oliver Pinter 2007-03-09 22:38:56 UTC
I think, that is a kde bug, but under <= functionirt.
dmesg is all ok, 
Comment 3 Olaf Kirch 2007-03-27 04:13:33 UTC
Can you please provide more information on what stops working, and
the symptoms?

What are the symptoms of "KDE environment crashes"? Do applications
segfault? The X server? Are there any messages in ~/.xsession-errors?
As far as I understand, this is not a kernel crash, right?
Comment 4 Eric W. Biederman 2007-04-02 18:25:02 UTC
There is a signal handling bug, before 2.6.21-rc6 that has caused similar KDE
problems does running Linus latest tree cause this to go away?

Eric W. Biederman:
Oliver reports the problem not recurring after updating to 2.6.21-rc5-git7.
