Well I'm happy with GNOME now and it seems more stable, at least, on MY system. For the sake of others, here is my fstab in GNOME (my only gripe is if I reboot, I have to mount the internal hard disc again every time, but not the usb drive, it stays constant. Which was the opposite within KDE. I am clueless as to why. All I know is everything works seamlessly now. I dunno, is there a ghost in my machine? I have never understood computers, they never seem to work the same way twice. I just tinker until they DO work.
