I have three computers with last KDEs (and kdebase from CVS) + xfree 4.3
with the same problem. Plus one with 4.2 wihtout any problem. Locales and
fontoconfig are the same for the four machines.
In two of my laptops (Dell X200), if I try to write , for example, "á" in
konsole, i get "aaaa".

Just unsetting LD_BIND_NOW is enough to avoid the problem. Which has the
same effect (accented chars work) than starting any kde application from
a shell. So, I think is just a kdeinit problem.
I thought it could be a kdm init problem, but I see the same problem
starting kde via startx from a text console.
