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.
