Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kate

1. Open kate, go to settings->configure
2. Click sessions
3. Select "Load last-used session" and "Save Session" (on exit).
4. Click ok to apply the changes.
5. Open up a ton of files, like all of the source files for a project
6. Exit (your session should be saved)
7. Run kate again. A progress bar window will appear as it loads each of the files (if this goes by too fast you need more files or a slower computer).
8. Click the close button on the progress bar (a common situation -- you realize it's going to have to load a 75 file session and you realize it'd be faster to open a file in kwrite or emacs)
9. The window will close -- and then come back! Kate will try to relaunch itself!

The process will continue indefinitely. Each time you close the window,
it will pack back up starting over from 0%. A better behavior would be
for it to cancel loading the session and just fire up normal kate.

I don't know if this qualifies as a separate bug -- but if for step 7
you open up kate again by clicking a text file on the desktop, and then
instead of trying to close kate's progress bar window directly, you type
"pkill kate" into a terminal, kdesktop freezes.
