Paulo, someone on the kde list told me to use EXA acceleration, telling me to 
add this

He was unsure, and I couldn't ascertain whether my elderly X600 could 
'UseAtomBIOS' so I commented that line out.  I've using the laptop for 5 hours 
now with Desktop Effects enabled and without a freeze.  If you or anyone else 
reading is using an ATi card this is worth a try.

Perhaps there are similar AccelMethod entries for Intel cards that deal with 
the problem?
