can't log in to kde session (ppc)

Description of problem:
when I try to log in to a KDE session, the progress bar gets to about 80%, then the screen goes black and I get dumped back to the login screen. I tried both GDM and KDM.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
not really sure who is at fault, so I can't say...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install f10 w/all updates
2. set login session to KDE
3. log in
NOTE WELL: this is PPC hardware.
after switching to a VT and setting 'exec startkde' in .xinitrc, I can run 'startx -- :2' and get a KDE session. I also did a fresh install and installed LDX or whatever, and if I select a session type of Openbox/KDE, I can log in successfully.
"Fatal IO error: client killed" means X11 crashed. What's the video driver you're using?
I have no xorg.conf, but according to Xorg.0.log it is autoselecting ati.
Card is ATI RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600 M10] rev 0. The machine is a PowerBook G4 (aluminum).
Interesting, mind trying booting with some combination of the following grub/boot options:
I tried all 4 combinations, with the same result.
By the evidence gathered so far, it's either kwin or dbus crashing (more likely the former, since openbox seems to work fine here).
Thank you for the bug report. This issue needs to be addressed by the upstream developers. Please submit a report at http://bugs.kde.org. You are requested to add the bugzilla link here for tracking purposes. Please make sure the bug isn't already in the upstream bug tracker before filing it.
