Nope. Not seeing that at all. I suppose the obvious question would be
what, if any, widgets are you starting on your desktop. And, again
obvious, if you create a new user from scratch does the crash occur?
And, if the answer is no, can you configure the new user's desktop the
same as yours and reproduce the issue.
Digging in /var/log/messages* and /var/spool/abrt shows that most
(though not all) of the crashes come from kactivitymanagerd, which is
ironic as I don't explicitly use Activities (never having been able to
understand the point of them when we already have multiple desktops)
and would much prefer just to delete the whole thing, but that's not
