kwm: debugging cause of death

Could someone give me some pointers on how to find out why kwm
My setup is:
Remote X server running on Windows 2000 (over ethernet)
KDE on Centos 4.4
I use WinAxe as the Windows X server. This setup normally works well,
but there's an occasional problem. About once a day, kwm seems to die.
The decorations around the windows disappear, I can't use the mouse to
select a window, the panel disappears, and I can't switch desktops. I
don't think there's anything relevant in the system logs, and I can't
find any KDE logs.
My guess is that there's some sort of idle communication between kwm and
the X server; perhaps an occasional ping of some sort. It may be (just
guessing) that WinAxe occasionally responds incorrectly, or doesn't
respond, and kwm terminates.
Anyone happen to know where I can find any documentation on how a window
manager talks to a remote server?
