Amazing how fast I returned to gnome from kde 4.2. After experiencing few segfaults in plasma and meeting some garbage in my editor, I was ready to back off. It took additional half an hour to install ubuntu 9.04 and sync my home directory in place and now I am again in familiar gnome.
It's funny, because in days of kde 3.5.2 - I said to everyone that gnome is not for me. Now I am totally opposite with my opinion.
