Something is wrong for you. (unless you are using some very memory consuming 
non-x86 architecture).
For me, each KDE applications uses something that maybe averages to 10MB. 
Meaning that some use less, and some more virtual memory. I have 256MB ram, 
and starting KDE goes without using any swap. The normal level for me, with a 
lot of KDE applications loaded, and after some time, is around 140MB swap 
used. Xfree86 in itself is a memory hog, using 50MB VM right now, kmail 
second with 30MB.
