I have had my .kde* files get corrupted and do what you describe. I
finally did a cd and then
rm -rf .kde*
I had to resetup kde for that user but my problems went away. You want
to back up your bookmarks and address book. Then, re-import them after
you setup kde.
FWIW, I have had kde sessions running for much longer than 10 days
without problems. I have been following the upgrade to 4.10 and those
systems were updated less than 10 days ago.
