Jeff, there will always be bugs.  It possibly the case that you are the 
first to attempt to start a new file on a non-local file.  Would you 
care to open a bug on https://bugs.kde.org ?

(4.6.0) is not a beta, but a stable release, and (4.6.1) is the latest 
stable release, and includes several bug fixes.

I've been using KMM for several years now and have never lost any data.
