Well sometimes someithing in the system does not work: rm -rf / and reinstall
fixes it. Why does the system store everyting below /? Well, sometimes a user
has a problem other users don't have: rm -rf $HOME fix it. Why does the user
store everything below $HOME. Your KDE has a problem:
removing ~/.kde fix it. Why does KDE store everything below?
What do you expect is the result of a brute force method?
Here's a more sensible way of handling config problem
o use 'mv' not 'rm'
o there is .kde/share/config/<app>rc
o there is .kde/share/apps/<app>/...
o Start app, stop app:
find .kde -mmin -3 -ls
check files listed
This solves ~ 95% of config problems my users or I had.
Hope this helps,

To me vi is Zen. To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
You discover truth everytime you use it.
