Probably it matters what the underlying cause was.  In my case kontact was
trying to open the kde wallet to get my mail account passwords, and the
wallet/kded communication failed.  This would keep repeating until I began
to enter passwords for each account manually (I was up to ~160 drkonqi
windows when I got tied up doing something else while it was going on). 
After killing all those windows (a very slow process) they kept coming
until I killed all the kded processes, too.
