I investigated some more, and kaboon have a test to see if ~/.kde/
exist before presenting the migration screen.  It also print some
debug info to ~/.xsession-error when the user log in for the first
time.  This is what is printed in squeeze right now:

Xsession: X session started for test at on. 10. mars 20:32:32 +0100 2010

Apparently ~/.kde/ exist for new users.  I looked a bit further, and
found out that this come from our debian-edu-config package:

tjener:~# dpkg -l debian-edu-config
| Status=Not/Inst/Cfg-files/Unpacked/Failed-cfg/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name               Version            Description
ii  debian-edu-config  1.437              Configuration files for Skolelinux systems
tjener:~# dpkg -L debian-edu-config|grep skel

It is not present in version 1.423.  The file kickerrc was added to
override the default set of applets started in KDE 3, to make sure the
mediaapplet is started to show when CDs, DVDs and USB sticks are
plugged into the machine and make it simple to eject them.  I guess we
should try to find a better way to do this with KDE 4 and remove the
file.  See #570977 for a similar issue about configuring the default
KDE panel (this is about the favorites list, but I suspect we need to
adjust the default applets too. :).

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
