  Do you happen to have something like a konqueror window open when the 
changes happen?  I noticed similar things with KOffice apps when a konqueror 
window was opened.  It would screw things up badly, I *suspect* due to 
thumbnails trying to regenerate at the same time due to an autosave or 
something like that.  It would result in 0 byte files being saved, but not 
crashes.  As long as nothing was watching that directory it works fine
