Marking as Fedora 14 KDE blocker.
Can anyone who is seeing this bug try this koji build  and test if it fixes the issue?
This build fixes the issue, however it is also fixed by new version of PackageKit-0.6.9-4 available in updates-testing repo at the moment
This was discussed at the 2010-10-08 blocker review meeting and accepted as a blocker. Please push the appropriate fixes ASAP, KDE team, thanks!
Artem, no-one's quite sure how a PackageKit update could fix this, did you mean some other package?
@Adam, no, it's exactly PackageKit
I did following tests (updating and downgrading packages):
1) PackageKit*-0.6.7 and polkit-qt-0.96.1-1 - problem exists
2) PackageKit*-0.6.9 and polkit-qt-0.96.1-1 - problem does not exist
3) PackageKit*-0.6.7 and polkit-qt-0.96.1-2 - problem does not exist
4) PackageKit*-0.6.9 and polkit-qt-0.96.1-2 - problem does not exist
People on KDE bug are also wondering how this could help, however for me it works.
If some more info is necessary - inform me and I will try to provide it

which essentially reverts the fix here (to avoid bigger problems/regressions), in my quick-n-dirty testing, saw polkit-kde crash on logout in 2 out of 3 tries.

I made some progress with this bug and built new version of polkit-qt. I hope this will fix both issues but I want someone to test it before creating an update (I don't want to screw it up again :) ).
So please test this builds and write your results here:
