Is it possible that X crashes? That doesn't quite sound like it because the PC
should then attempt to restart X server or at least leave you in the command
line. I can't think of a situation where I ever saw this, but there was an old
bug in an old version of GwenView which could crash KWin (no big deal) if you
ALT+F4 in full-screen mode.
