I've had a similar problem, or perhaps several similar problems:

a) Sometimes I hit logout, it pops up the confirmation dialog, I hit ok, and
then it just sits there as if I were still logged in. In fact, all the
objects on the desktop still work. Then if I click logout a second time, and
click ok, it logs me out.

b) Other times, I click logout, and the dialog pops up, but the windows on
my screen seem to oscillate between being focused and unfocused. This
especially seems to happen when I have licq running (I figure that maybe
since it's not "pure" KDE it doesn't understand sessions well?) The
flickering can be brief or can go on for 10 seconds or more. I'm not sure
what would happen if I OKed the logout; whenever that happens I click cancel
and then close licq and any other apps I think might be misbehaving, and
then logout, which works fine.

Also, what's the difference between ~/.kde/Autostart and
~/.kde/share/autostart? And ~/autosave?

Stay fuzzy... save the world... choices!
