There's a bug with the Intel driver when DE for KWin is enabled such 
that the system eventually uses all of its available file handles and 
everything locks up with the notification of "too many open files". 
Nothing can be run since that is requires a file to be opened. 
Ctrl+Alt+Bksp is the only way I've found that "fixes" the problem 
without a reboot (other than not using DE, which is...annoying). Yes 
there is a bug open against it: 
<https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=486695>. Anything else 
that causes similar things to happen either need a reboot without 
Ctrl+Alt+Bksp.
