Well that's strange.  When you mention it crashing your Xorg session does
that mean the Xorg server itself crashes (i.e. instantaneous dump back to
the command line) or that TDE terminates leaving Xorg still running?

kdesktop_lock is spawned from kdesktop, so any debugging would likely
involve terminating kdesktop and running kdesktop_lock under gdb from a
terminal.  When I have an answer to the above question I'll get back to
you on how to debug further.

Also, Did this bug first appear in RC2 or did it show up earlier?
