Most recent kernel where this bug did *NOT* occur: <= 2.6.20-.1
Distribution: debian 4.0
Hardware Environment: asus p4c800 p4ht(northwood) R9600
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
Is there any error message left in your dmesg after crashing kde? This looks
like a kde bug
I think, that is a kde bug, but under <=22.214.171.124 functionirt.
dmesg is all ok,
Can you please provide more information on what stops working, and
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?
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?

Oliver reports the problem not recurring after updating to 2.6.21-rc5-git7.
