In a terminal type xkill.Your curser will turn into a skull-n-crossbones and you x-out the window with your mouse.This will kill all processes for that app.

try "ps -eH" and kill the pid that the program is in. I don't have much experience in linux, but i already don't like kde too much. I would suggest using fluxbox (it has been very stable and worked well for me) I bet there are a lot of people who know how to deal w/ kde out there though. good luck

Flux does rule, editing the menu is a piece of cake, loading is amazingly fast, and I have yet to make it crash.

As for killing, xkill is how I do it too. I made a desktop shortcut to xkill so I just click it, skull and crossbones the app, and smile. I thought I had it in my "right click" menu in kicker, but from your question, I guess not.
