As far as I can see, all that's gone is my ~/.kde - and that's a big enough 
pain :-)  So far, everything I've checked has been fine, so I'm thinking that 
it's either power or over-heating.  Since I've been running tests for several 
hours, I'm inclined to rule out over-heating, so I'll get a new PSU.  The case 
was not a cheap one, but it did have a built-in PSU.  Come to think of it, I 
do believe that I have a 400w PSU in my cupboard, that is a known good brand, 
and unused.
