Hi! I have installed Fedora 18 KDE spin some while ago. All works fine until I choose shutdown or restart from any of the menus. The shutdown/reboot is blocked by an error message that claims "kwin signal: segmentation fault (11)" whatever that means and I got to close this error message to proceed. This was going on like this since the clean install, so I'm sure no newbie tweak attempts or packages from martian repo's were involved in this. Any ideas how could I get rid of this annoying message?

Thanks!!

PS: I tried 'sudo init 6' - no error message appearing this way, but it just doesn't seem okay to open a console for every restart/shutdown.
