Yes, I also have an nvidia gf4 card. Also, it's random and not every
time. Never had this with breezy. I saw a post somewhere where
people thought it might be their kdmrc file. Of course the kdmrc is
heavily edited for dapper, so I haven't tried using the original (if
we even have it).

Yes, I'll comment this out and let you know my experience over the
next day(s). It's a reboot issue on my system, not login/logout ..
although it occurs just when X is ready to start the kdm login screen.
I have mine configured to auto login after 5 seconds, which is
something new for kdm.
