KDE crashes when windows too small (quick tile, firefox, konsole)

Hello all.

I'm running KDE 4.6.00 on openSuSE 11.4. The system is nearly perfect in my mind, minus some weird KDE crashes. I've set the meta+left/right keys to perform the "quick tile" operation. When I have a firefox (or konsole) window tiled on the left or right half of my screen, un-tiling it (for example, pressing meta+left when it is tiled to the right) will sometimes cause the window to become too small to see. In about 90% of the times that this happens, the program crashes. In case this is not clear, I'm starting with a window which is tiled on half of my screen, and I want to either move it to the other half, or just get it to the not-tiled state in the middle of my screen, then it shrinks, and usually crashes.

I tried setting the startup geometry for both konsole and firefox. Otherwise, I'm at a loss. I can avoid the problem by manually resizing a quick-tiled window from half-screen size to something smaller, in lieu of using the meta+right/left keys to undo the quick-tile and put it in the center of the screen. Thank you in advance for your help.
