KDE error(?) messages


I hope that I'm posting on the right forum; if not, I appologise and please redirect me.

My Linux box (Gentoo) loads fine, starts KDE and runs OK. Everything seems nice, but I'm not so sure... The reason? If I switch to console 11, where KDE logs messages, I read the followings:
SetClientVersion: 0 8
SetGrabKeysState - disabled
X Error: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied) 10
Major opcode: 2
Minor opcode: 0
Resource id: 0x400005
SetGrabKeysState - enabled
and then it repeats itself. What does it mean? Do I seat on a time bomb, or can I safely ignore this?

Thanks for advise

I don't know enough to understand such gobbledegook, so I ignore it. I have a sneaking suspicion that it's a case of "we can't convince them, let's confuse them."

I have a file in my home directory called .xsession-errors and it seems to acquire entries at a rapid rate. I opened it once out of morbid curiosity and had to reload it into the text editor several times because of new entries.

Now and again, usually because I succumbed to the temptation to "upgrade" something, things start going haywire and I have to reinstall something, even the whole OS. That keeps me busier with the system than I'd like.

BTW, have you ever used strace or tried to make sense of a core dump?

No, and no. (actually, don't even know what strace is )
