Still not 'ready for the desktop'

KDE 4.7 B1 still suffers of BOTH Kwin and Plasma crashing upon shutdown. That just is no way an acceptable feature for a mainstream desktop environment. At least they seem to have fixed Kded4, which always got stuck into a infinite loop when Xorg was killed. I am yet to test whether they also fixed other Kded4 problems like ACPI Shutdown key causing a one-minute freeze of the system.
