Default KDE 4.2.4 locks up when Closing certain Windows

I am currently running KDE 4.2.4 from (http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/ppa/ubuntu) on Inspiron 1520 (Nvidia 8400 M GS with latest driver 180.60) and I see frequent freezes/lockups when I close certain Windows like firefox with few tabs, Emacs or Konsole.

Mouse still keeps working, but KDE doesn't respond to any keyboard event except switching to console via Alt-Ctrl-F1..F6. After temporary pause of few seconds everything starts working again as usual (without restarting or anything of the sort).

I have faced this issue from KDE 4.1.3 and all versions of NVIDIA drivers. The problem doesn't occur when running Gnome. I had same problem with vanilla install of KDE 4.2.2 from stock Kubuntu as well.

I have tried filing bug reports with KDE people:

I have tried to raise same issue before:

I will be attaching Xorg.0.log and nvidia-bug report as well in the attachment. Its really very annoying problem and I couldn't find anything in dmesg or syslog. If required, I am willing to attach them as well.
