Some people *really* don't experience KDE4 crashes; it really seems to
be good or bad luck/drivers. The only crashes I experienced with KDE4
are some Intel driver crashes (for example, with Lucid-era Intel
drivers on my hardware, Xv + OpenGL game == Crash at the exit of OpenGL
with high probability: I can't blame KDE4 here); I never ever had a KDE4
crash with ATI graphics hardware, let the KDE4 version be 4.2 or
4.4, KWin effects be enabled or not and the propietary or the FOSS
driver be used.
The best way to avoid crashing KDE4 with bad drivers is just to disable
KWin effects. Anyway KWin effects are too slow for the versions of KDE4
I use (<= 4.5.5), and according to what Martin Gr��lin is saying on his
blog we'll have to wait KDE 4.8 for good KWin performance.
