Default [Bug Report] KDE4 Plasma looses theming and fonts with 180.44/180.51/185.19


since several month I've the problem that running KDE 4.2.2 some time ( 2-3 h ) the plasma desktop "looses" its theming and fails to display fonts. (please see attached screenshots of how this looks).
At the time as this happens I've the following messages in my $HOME/.xsessions log file:

In file image/qpixmap_x11.cpp, line 1424: Out of memory
QPainter::begin: Paint device returned engine == 0, type: 3
QPainter::setCompositionMode: Painter not active

If I kill & restart plasma everything is fine for the next 2 - 3 hours. I've talked to some plasma guys if this behaviour could be plasma's fault but they told me that this is not the case instead they pointed out it could be a memory leak caused by the nvidia drivers.

I've attached the nvidia_bug_report log and an abstract of my .xsession log. Please let me know if there is information missing which helps you to debug this error.

My Setup:

Intel Quad Core CPU
GeForce 8500 GT (rev a1)
180.51 nvidia driver
