I don't know if this is related, but it sounds like it could be.

Do you have the xine-libs artsplugin compiled? When i did i experienced 
lockups very often when using konqueror, with artsd hanging using 100% 
cpu time and konqueror being totally dead. The system would continue as 
normal once i killed arts. I did suspect it would hang when it was 
generating previews, and turning them off did help, although it would 
still happen randomly once in a while. To me, the xine support seems to 
be highly immature.
