I figured out what is causing the problem. In the dir ~/.kde4/Autostart/
for some error was located a normal text file without exec permissions;

$ ls -l .kde4/Autostart/
total 8
-rw-r--r--  1 guru  wheel     4 15 may 21:03 foo.txt

this brings up some process:

4239  -  I     0:00,07 kdeinit4: kdeinit4: kate -b /home/guru/.kde4/Autostart/foo.txt (kdeinit

which makes the full KDE unuseable; you can just try this :-) and remove
the file again and all is fine;

Where should I file a bug report?
