menu bars are drawn by kwin. if you're using compiz or any such eye
candy software, it's that program the culprit.
so for a start, are you using compiz or any other window manager?
does this happen with effects enabled and disabled? or just with one?
what's your graphic card, and are you sure it's installed properly?
there are many reasons why would kwin crash, it's not unheard of, but
all the time is a problem.
