Description of problem:
Starting KSnapshot (/usr/bin/ksnapshot) from a GNOME session and saving the
picture results in GNOME becoming unresponsive to further mouse actions.
Only restarting X with <CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE> can bring the system back to a
running state (or perhaps by going to a virtual console and try some action
there, although I did not try that).
Programs like Konqueror and Kview do work when saving a file; KDE's
file-selector in these programs starts as expected, but the file-selector in
KSnapshot does not appear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a GNOME session.
2. Start KSnapshot (/usr/bin/ksnapshot)
3. Save screenshot
GNOME hangs and does not respond to further mouse clicks.
KDE's file selector should appear.

Hmm, it works for me with fresh installed RHL 9.
