Yeah but I have no time to troubleshoot now.

It's funny... it hadn't crashed for a while but it always crashes if I 
click on (Konsole's) window-tile on the panel.

Maybe other tiles too. So I just clicked it because I thought it had 
magically gone away, and instant crash xD.

I was going to file a bug report but I needed to download 300 meg of 
debug information for that, so Haven't done it yet.

It always says my bug reports are worthless unless I do extra work :(. 
Thanks for reminding me. My router had summersaulted and wanted a hard 
reset before it would work again. So I forgot...

cause Ubuntu was unreachable :p.

At least I can file the bug report now. But I still don't know if it is 
my GPU or not. What happened was....

I had put SystemD on hold, but SystemD depends on a specific version of 
libsystemd. However upon installing Wine for something it wanted that 
newer version. It also upgraded a whole bunch of other packages. I think 
after that the crashing started, but I'm not sure.

Also reminded me I need to redo my SystemD messups again :). Otherwise I 
would probably have an unbootable system... :-/.
