from konsole:

$ which krunner

Also kde 4.3.0, Gentoo/~amd64 Linux.

kubuntu 8.04 and 7.04.  Would those be kde3?  I'd expect at least 7.04 
would be, but am not sure about 8.04.  AFAIK, kde3 didn't have a separate 
run dialog executable, it was part of kdesktop.  Killing it will kill the 
desktop, but kicker, that is, all the panels, etc, should still work.  
Also, if you have a konsole window going, you should still be able to 
type commands (such as kdesktop &, to restart it) into it.
