I had this problem once or twice. I used KDE System Guard (under System / 
Monitor) to view all the processes in Tree View. When I did that I could see 
that there was a process nspluginviewer that was a child of the bad kdeinit 
process. I could kill either kdeinit, or nspluginviewer, and the problem was 
fixed. It turns out that nspluginviewer was called by Konqueror to display a 
particular web page (I think maybe it was calling macromedia flash player). I 
did not do anything to fix it, and it has not happened in a long time, but 
maybe this is a clue.
