Hi José,

this reminds me very much to a  monolithic "Registry" database.
In KDE, most applications create their own .config folder - and read defaults 
from /etc/config at first start per user.

However, I experience increasingly cases where I have to delete ~/.gconf 
because otherwise the user is thrown out of KDE right away!

Likewise (but this is another issue), users are losing their applets in Kicker 
(like clock, window bar) from time to time due to concurrent versions of KDE.
(or is it the Kiosk mode?).

I do know these are rather associations that will not settle your question.
