I don't know. Either KDE was getting progressively worse as they moved to KDE 4.4.5 and used more features or the Nvidia drivers are getting more progressively worse.
Yeah, I've read a number of posts about that. I use Gnome pretty exclusively, so haven't seen it, thankfully.
Good luck with the 5850, fine card. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
