Default Program crashes after today's F8 updates

Has anyone had any crashes of programs after todays updates (including to
2.6.24.3-50.fc8) ?

Earlier I had Thunderbird (stock version) mysteriously crash for no reason and
vanishes from the KDE desktop. Restarting was not a problem. A few minutes ago
I was using Acroread and asked it to print a file - it immediately crashed and
again there is no information in the logs.

Very weird - and this has never happened to me before today.

Just interested if anyone else has any similar experience today?

I've had wierd stuff like that a few times (not today though) but it
seems to go away when I exit the session (KDE) and log in again.

Anything in your ~/.xsession-errors file?

Yes but I don't know what to look for...

There are no timestamps on the lines but the last section has:

Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "MIT-SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "MIT-SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "MIT-SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "MIT-SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "MIT-SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "MIT-SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "MIT-SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display ":0.0".

The top of the file has:
xset: bad font path element (#73), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax
startkde: Starting up...
kbuildsycoca running...
Xlib: extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".

Does this give any hints?

I wonder if this is related to
http://www.realvnc.com/pipermail/vnc-list/2007-February/057113.html
or
http://bugs.kde.org/134765

I do have the vnc module loaded via xorg.conf

I added Load "extmod" to my xorg.conf file and the above messages no
longer appear in the .xsession-errors file - I will have to wait
and see if the couple of crashes reported previously recur or not.

Thanks for pointing me to the .xsession-errors file.
