Default After a while, dolphin, konqueror (and other KDE apps) won't start... (or, in my case, freeze)

I'm seeing something maybe related on F14 KDE 4.6.5.

Everything works, than suddenly all KDE applications get stuck and do not
refresh the screen anymore; the clock is stopped, desktop switching only
happens with Ctrl-F{1-...}, but non KDE applications (Firefox, Pidgin) still
run perfectly.
The KDE processes are all stuck in D state: typically kded4, konqueror, konsole.
strace is impossible, kill -9 is impossible.
Killing X doesn't remove the applications and the new KDE session does not
manage to start them correctly.

I suspected a kernel bug (maybe related to Nouveau), but after having upgraded
to the current F16 kernel (on F14) it still happens, so I would think it is
not kernel related.

Some signs point to sync being involved. I've seen sync_supers stuck in D state.

When trying a echo "t" >/proc/sysrq-trigger I manage to find only a partial
output in /var/log/messages (msg buffer overflow?).

Yesterday some processes were "D", but only a non KDE process was logged (mencoder,
possibly locked because of konsole); I'm not sure what the trace is saying,
but there is again some arrows pointing to "sync".
Where can I file a bug? Is someone able to offer any insight?

Best regards.
