switching users kills first user

For at least the last month, sometimes when I switch user (as in "switch
user" from the KDE menu) to another user's session, the session for the
first user is killed.

This has happened with 2 or 3 user sessions.  It has happened when
switching from the first session (vt7) or the 2nd (vt8).  The session
killed usually is using a lot of memory, but there is still quite a bit
of virtual memory left.

Is anyone else seeing this?  Any suggestions for what to do?  I don't
even know what package I would file a bug against--if anyone knows, I'd
love to hear it.

The free nvidia driver does not work with my card, a GeForce 6600 LE.
There have been some point releases of the kernel since the nvidia
stuff; I'm not sure if it needs to be updated to match the kernel
exactly or not.

I've founding nothing useful in the logs, just
