plasma crashes in 4.2

Description of problem:
Running the kde 4.2 packages currently in updates-testing, I've had a couple random plasma crashes; in neither case was I immediately interacting with plasma, and I was doing different things each time.
The first time I had been copying some data off DVD using dolphin, so I was making occasional use of plasma (file copy status and recently plugged devices). I think I had just closed a dolphin window when plasma nuked.
The second time, I was just browsing in firefox when plasma went *boom*.
This was before picking up the latest -testing kdesettings packages; not sure if they'll have any effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
randomly happens so far

I recently migrated my installation to some different hardware, and experienced this crash again:
- only video card and one hard drive common with the previous system--old was C2D on Intel 945GM, this is Phenom II on nv 590 SLI. Smolt's not talking to me right now so haven't updated profile yet.
- this time I didn't even have evil nvidia module loaded
- had picked up the updated set of packages (including kdebase-workspace-4.2.0-8.fc10.x86_64).
With packages now pushed to updates and presumably ready for primetime, should I take this to mean low probability of Fedora specificity, and push this report to kde bz?
