(As this bug probably has something to do with the interaction between
the KDE app(s) in question and GNOME and X, I'm not totally sure where
to put this.)

-------------------------------------------
tl;dr: If I'm using a KDE app during a GNOME session, sometimes it will log me out, which upon further research is caused by an X Server crash.  This happens sporadically and I have not been able to pin down any one action that causes it, but it seems to be because of some sort of segmentation fault.
-------------------------------------------

I'm using the usual Ubuntu (GNOME) install, updated regularly but
running one or two KDE-based apps on top of it - the one that most
commonly triggers this condition is KolourPaint on top of GNOME, but
that's because that's the one I most commonly use.  (Then again, I'm
using it because GNOME-based paint program clones are not nearly at that
level of development.)

This is what I generally do:
1. Log in and start any GNOME programs.  This works fine.
2. Start the KDE-based program.  This also works fine.
3. At some point while fooling around with said KDE-based program, the entire X Server is brought down.  No, I can't seem to isolate this to any particular action or set of actions.

Notes:
1. This error seems to have replaced the fact that when said program crashes, it brings up an error screen with the intent to report a bug, where the button to actually report said bug is nonfunctional (due to the fact that I do not actually have a full complement of Kubuntu packages).
2. The error in question, both in the previous report-a-bug screen and now with X crashes, seems to be some sort of segmentation fault.  Not that I know what that means.
3. I didn't report this error when it brought up the KDE error screen.  I report it now.  That's because I'd vastly prefer catching bugs, even without saving program state, to completely upending X.  Ending every program without so much as giving the user a chance to save state is /not nice/.
4. Despite the fact that I'm not totally sure whether this is an X bug or not, I used the report-with-X-info anyway; it might be useful.
5. I'm going to get a backtrace as soon as I can.
