Sig15 is pretty normal on a shutdown as its the normal SIGTERM. Sig6 is
SIGABRT and is usually caused by a serious (but detected) program problem.
Sig11 is more serious, usually a program bug, but can be caused by bad
memory or system temperature issues.
I run kdm on my -current box and haven't detected any issues that would
indicate problems with any signal-handling code.

Make sure you're upgrading properly.
