"Completely clean reboot" er, we're talking about Unix, not windows. If you 
kill your X server, it's as clean as it gets. It will also log-in much 

If you can repeatedly get any benefit from a "clean reboot", you have some 
serious problems. Either a misconfiguration somewhere, a miscompiled kernel 
(i.e. a spurious bit flip somewhere during compilation), a buggy kernel 
(wrong patchlevel etc) or dying hardware. There's just no other way methinks.

I beg you to be more specific. Did the process survive it, or what?? If 
kdevelop survives killall -9, it means it's stuck in a syscall, and you 
likely have other issues. Is that on nfs?
