Which part do you find "cheeky"?

Hmm, I thought we were talking about KDE.

And they promised (though of course they would have no basis to do it)
that KDE would not try to improve its look?  I don't see, where you are
going with this.

Well, when you said system freezes, I figured, "90% probably an X bug",
now that you add this, I figure, "99.5% probabilty X bug" (that is b/c
very few KDE applications have enough rights to lock your system, and
the few that do - kppp and artswrapper - have nothing to do with moving
windows).  Is it possible, that you have a different X version
installed, then what your KDE was compiled against?  Have you changed
your graphics card, or other X settings - KWin accesses some specific X
functions when moving windows not otherwise used; though I haven't heard
of problems with XFree 4 yet, some of the XFree 3.x S3 drivers e.g. had
this problem. Is there a newer version of X you can upgrade to?  Could
also be that a change in KDE triggers an X bug.
