when I load an existing project, kdevelop opens, but hangs to the extent, I can't do anything else: the mouse will move but won't select another app, even in the panel. I have to kill X and restart: a true Windows experience ;-)

To fix it I simply move the session file aside and kdevelop opened as it should. I assume a crash left me with a malformed session file and upon restart, kdevelop can't grok it. 

I'd call this pretty severe, since it renders kdevelop and the whole desktop unusable if the workaround isn't understood.
