I am having a crash problem with my KDE v3.5.8 (not even sure if it is 
KDE's fault) crashing X to console (I use startx command when booting up 
Debian). Anyways, I think I had this problem for months and maybe a 
year, but finally figured out the pattern to reproduce it.

Basically in KDE, I go to virtual desktop 2, 3, or 4 (I have four set 
up). If I press ctrl-alt-F1 (or any other console screens) keys to go 
back to console/text mode, then KDE and X crash. I can reproduce this 
easily. If I am in virtual desktop #1, then no crash.

I have two logs from X: http://pastebin.ca/936064 and I hope these help! 
Any ideas on what's the problem and how to fix it? Thank you in advance.
