Try Alt-SysRq-R, this should take the keyboard away from X and
Ctrl-Alt-F1 should work again. Or Alt-SysRq-K, this will kill all
procecces of the current terminal.
When logged in from remote, you could try 'chvt 1' to change the console
(like Ctrl-Alt-F1).

Dou you have Konquerors, Konqui or Akregator sessions starting up
automatically? Here, whenever I start Konqueror and a page with flash
contgent is displayed, LibreOffice starts. Only once, it does not happen
again when I open such pages in other tabs. Maybe that's your problem,
too? I also did not find any reference to LibreOffice in ~/.kde4, but I
still did not invetigate this further, and for some weeks now I am away
from my KDE desktop anyway, So I don't care much.

My workaround was to rename the LibreOffice binary, so whatever will
start it, it cannot find it.
