I've seen a problem like this when I've installed networkmanager, and connected to a network that tried to set my hostname (a 3g connection). When it set the hostname I had no other way of getting back control of X / KDE3 than restarting the X server. I've solved it by adding two lines into /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf:
if you don't use networkmanager, there must be some option to pass to your DHCP client so it doesn't overwrite your hostname... I don't think this is kde3 related (cannot connect to X server :0.0), but I might be wrong, never tried it on other DE's.
