If the problem doesn't persist when removing kde then you either: a) start afresh, and forget about it b) start from last good backup (assuming you have one, most home users seemingly don't) c) work on localizing the problem further by starting to move parts of your old .kde into your new empty .kde (in order to find which configuration file triggers the problem). Once you've localized the problem this way, you'll be able to give the devs enough info to reproduce your problem, thus enabling them to start looking for the underlying cause. c is the way to help with improving kde, but ofc you need to have the time for it > Fine.
