Pff, shot me but that is just not true. I was _pretty_ happy with kde 4.2 on Ubuntu 9.04. Minor things like occasional crashes of bluetooth applet or painfully slow dolphin copying of files were painful but I could stand that. Until one day it just stopped. Literally. It stopped loading just after panel showed up and nothing happened. One restart of KDM, another one, and another later. No joy. rm -rf ~/.kde and restart of KDM. Still nothing. Well f--k that, I am using Gnome for 2 weeks now and since I was always KDE fan I don't enjoy it much but at least it don't crash. I'll give 4.3 a try when it's out as I am hopeless guy who just wants his KDE desk back!

by your description , and if you removed ~/.kde ( in fact , if its kdm crashing , you didnt even had to remove ~/.kde ) , you should know that its not kde's fault , but your ubuntu kde installation.

probably ubuntu updated or changed something ( or you ).

of course , properly installed kde ( and Xorg ) wont make kdm crash and restart indefinitly, no matter which version ( kde 4.0 , 4.1 , 4.2 or even beta's or svn versions )
