I've had to restart x windows many times in kubuntu. the gui isn't such a strong link but all the attention goes to the kernel. For a server that's ok but if you are doing a multimedia task that can't be interrupted, that's a big deal.

A small bug free kernel is great but we really have to look at the whole system.
