Description of problem:
1. I installed RH 8 from cd onto my laptop
2. Installed additional products & customized graphical environment
3. For a few days all went fine, all of a sudden kwin crashed with messages below
4. Since then, kwin crashes systematically after login into kde and the
panel etc. is loaded 


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start system, login to kde
2. await subsystems to be initialized (keyboard, sounds, panel, session,...)
3. when user interface starts to load : kwin crashes (and also everytime I try
to start it manually )

Actual Results:  see error mesages below

Expected Results:  normal startup of GUI, restore of previous session

Hmm, i cannot reproduce it on RHL 8.0. Please make sure that you have only
installed the KDE rpms from redhat 8.0.
