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.

Default Re: KDE 4.2.4 locks up when Closing certain Windows

Well I am unable to start X Server using "startx -logverbose 6" command.

without logverbose option it starts fine, but with logverbose option it tries to start xterm and exits with "Invalid option" message.

The double hyphen is necessary:
startx -- -logverbose 6

Thanks to conky's input, I was able to start X with logverbose 6 and attached is the nvidia bug report file, which was generated right after the plasma got hung.

I am bumping the topic. Can any of Nvidia devs have a look at this, whether this is a problem at my end or whether there is a problem with KDE or whether there is a problem with the Driver???

Dear Nvidia,

May I know why the hell, you are not responding to the thread. Since you don't have a bug tracker of any sort, messages in forum will get lost unless paid attention at the earnest.
