saving contents of applications with a frozen kde desktop

assume a, for whatever reason, frozen KDE desktop. The mouse arrow is still 
moving, but not changing anymore when over an icon, whereever clicking leads 
to no result. The only solution to work again will be the Ctrl+Alt+Backspace 
key combination to get to work again.

Is there a way to login to the machine via SSH or at the console and to tell 
some programs, e.g. openoffice to detach from the KDE gui, so that I can 
restart the KDE gui, log in again, then I have to find the process waiting in 
the background and tell it to attach to the new KDE gui? This would help me 

The functionality may be comparable to the screen utility for text based 

Does sth. like this exist, and if so, how do I make use of it?

kind regards
