Subject: Re: programs vanish with 2.6.22+

Just forgot to mention:
dmesg gives nothing (/var/log/messages)
the global X log aswell

and in the users .xsession-errors I have:
amarokapp: Fatal IO error: client killed
kdesktop: Fatal IO error: client killed
konqueror: Fatal IO error: client killed
The application 'xchat' lost its connection to the display :0.0;

I dont know what that means, but at least its something ;)
