Run fc-cache as root and then login to kde again. On a few system it seems the 
font cache was out of data and it killed the performance on those also.

Also if you forced "anything" remove all of kde and install it again. Do not 
force the package system you just end up breaking stuff. Your slowdown may be 
a result of forcing the package. Also when I say all of kde I mean kde 3.1.5 
and 3.2.1 from the system and reinstall them so that the results of forcing 
are removed.
