Moving mouse pointer onto KDE Panel crashes KDE.

Hi all,

I hope someone may point me in the right direction. I've been intermittently 
experiencing a problem where moving the mouse pointer onto the KDE Panel can 
crash the whole KDE session (I'm taken right back to login screen while I can 
see that my previous session still exists). This seems to have happened since 
upgrading to KDE 3.4.0, not from the very start either.

I'm running XOrg 6.8.2 (release 2) on kernel 2.6.12-rc4 (although this also 
happens with 2.6.11). When I upgraded to 3.4.1 it didn't happen for a while, 
but I accidently upgraded XOrg to 6.8.99 and then had to downgrade back to a 
working version. Ever since then the problem occurs. It may happen as often 
as several times in an hour, or not even once for hours, it's difficult to 
predict when it will happen and debug it.

I have a ALPS touchpad (Toshiba Tecra S1) and I'm running the latest synaptics 

I've looked at dmesg and XOrg logs but there is nothing there to indicate a 
problem. I'm not really sure it's even KDE that's at fault although the fact 
this happens only with KDE Panel and the effect is so drastic that made me 
post this here. I'm quite happy to send any debugging info... if someone can 
tell me where to find it :)
