RedHat7.2 and 4191 stability

I'm running RH7.2 with a dual PIII and a quadro4 700XGL. I tend to use KDE and there are a few quirks I have noticed. Sometimes the scroll bars on windows go 'funny' and the buttons at the bottom of a shell window are also not displayed properly.

The biggest problem is that sometimes I get logged off KDE. I wil be doing work, then the NVidia screen comes up and I am at the KDE login screen. I am not 100% sure that this is a driver problem, but given the other problems with the display I was wondering. I have rolled back to the previous driver to check.

Has anyone else had any problems like this?

Yes, are you using RenderAccel in XF86Config?
That seems to be the source of the 2d corruption issues.
Backing_store and save_unders seem to be ok though.

That would be your X server dying. When that happens, the best place to look for a reason would be the X log file -- unfortunately, in your case, you have X set to respawn itself immediately, which immediately deletes the relevant log file and starts up another one.

Boot to runlevel 3, which is text mode login, and then do a startx to get into KDE (if KDE isn't the default, then doing an echo exec startkde >~/.xinitrc should fix that). Then, work on reproducing the crash, and once it happens (I know, it might take a while), copy the /var/log/XFree86.0.log file to somewhere else (like your home directory). Then startx again, and attach the file to your next post.
