Maybe you got in earlier than I did.  I installed Fedora Rawhide a few weeks 
before it become F9.  I think the initial kde was 4.0.3.  Too few features, I 
agree, although I would not have liked to be made to wait 6 months for the 
next release before seeing KDE 4.  The crashes surprise me, though.  I've 
just occasionally had an application crash, but not often, and never 
affecting anything else.  I guess there are too many variables to know why 
this happened to you.
