[kde-linux] 'End Session' problem

I really don't like to roll up this discussion again, but it seems like "splash=verbose" in grub.conf doesn't fix the logoff problem completely. One of my colleagues told that despite of "verbose" he had this problem at least one time (after logout, black screen with mouse pointer, forever) - and yesterday, I had it again, too.
Seems like there is more than "splash=verbose" :-( Can there be any more reasons? (At least, X can now be restarted with 'init 3; init 5' and not a reboot).
