Slackware64 13.37 KVM GUEST Xorg segfaults when starting KDE (workaround)
 
Installed Slackware64 on a KVM Guest with Virt-Manager in Fedora 15 beta and
found that Xorg crashes (segfaults) when loading KDE.
XFCE, Blackbox both works ok, even KDM (while in RL4) works ok.

sha256sum of the iso: 382064d41b1f13b8ebf1399aed73606fe23c46dd3b8d110e403aacd5ae8f97af

Host: F15-beta KDE x86_64, AMD Phenom II
Guest: Slackware64 13.37

Issue:
* Xorg segfaults when loading KDE, XFCE works ok.
* In RL3, startx fails.
* In RL4, KDM loads but KDE fails when loading, after log-in.

Woraround:
* In RL4, KDM: Select KDE Failsafe, it works. (Normal KDE does not).
Sadly i do not know how to invoke it manually from RL3, so
startx will not work.

Virtualization: KVM, Virt-Manager
Guest HW: VGA Cirrus or VMVGA, both affected.
Guest Machine Type: Linux, Other 2.6.X Kernel.
