X server dies on Logout kubuntu 10.10

When I logout on kubuntu my xserver dies and I have to start x again manually from console. Im not to kubuntu 10.10 and I tried to check out /etc/X11/xorg.conf but its not there. Anybody have a solution for this. Oh on reboot xserver starts automatically. I am using opensource drivers and video card is radeon x700 pro

On some Kubuntu systems, the display server crashes on logout instead of returning to the KDE Display Manger (KDM) login display. For systems with this problem, the problem can be avoided by changing the method KDM uses to interact with the display server. Edit /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc and uncomment the line "#TerminateServer=true" by changing it to "TerminateServer=true" and restart KDM (reboot the system or sudo restart kdm). (651294)
Thanks that problem looks like its solved

p.s. By the way. I did google I must have missed it.
