There could be something wrong with the way the system handles the shutdown.
Once my system reaches the state where it kills all processes there is no way 
for an application to block this, the KILL signal can't be caught and 

KDE apps won't be alive at that stage anyway, because the X server has shut 
down before and loosing the connection to the X server usually kills all 
common X clients due to the implementations of their toolkits.
