Are you using Fedora KDE packages? They're pretty substandard and if so you 
may find the ones from the kde-redhat repository here are a better bet: 


Also, are you using true transparency and drop shadows with the composite 
extention in X.org? This is a great way of getting X to crash randomly. 

Another place to look for error messages is in ~/.xsession-errors
