** Description changed:

  At boot time, the KDE session always opens successfully. If I log out
  and try to log in again, kwin crashes immediatly after entering my
  password and pressing enter, without displaying KDE desktop, instead I'm
  back to the login screen. The next attempt is always successful and the
  KDE session opens, but with the desktop effects disabled.
  After opening System Settings, then Desktop Effects, I can see the
  message " OpenGL compositing (the default) has crashed KWin in the
- past." If I re-enable the desktop effects and log out, the crash
- repeats. This is 100% reproductible.
+ past." If I re-enable the desktop effects and log out, then try to log
+ in again, the crash repeats as described above. This is 100%
+ reproductible.
  The only two ways to be able to log in without crash when the desktop
  effects are enabled are rebooting or killing the X-server.
  This happens with kubuntu 11.10 (on a fresh install but also with all
  updates) and 12.04 alpha1, but this did not happen with kubuntu 11.04.
  This happens with both 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
