Yeah, its not just gkrellm either. You may remember my frantic posts about this behaviour; I turned my system up-side-down, stripped it all the way down. The problem went away but then, just a few weeks ago, it froze up when I ran a battery & temp monitoring desklet app - it hit me: it was f'ng ACPI all along! Now its all clear: gkrellm was making the situation worse, but the system crashed even without gkrellm (although after much longer uptime) because KDE still had its battery monitoring facilities running. Now I just probe the data whenever I need it; these single probes are virtually harmless.
