Well... first, the binary compatibility problem, normally causes that you have
to restart the KDE session. Moving the .kde, IMHO, should be done in other
kind of situations.
Second: That surprises me a bit. :-(
Kopete never crashed in my machine, and konqueror 3.3.x only in a few websites
which are known bugs.
And know the more interesting thing: _neither_ kopete or konqueror use
IIRC, libkdenetwork was written for kmail, and it was moved from kdenetwork to
kdepim, so only kdepim apps use it (apt-cache rdepends is your friend) and
still has the old name.

No, unfortunately not. Just have a look how the configuration is stored (I
know this can be horrible, yes). Usually the config for an application is
stored in ~/.kde/share/apps/name and in ~/.kde/share/config/namerc.
Knowing that, you can workaround some problems. A simple solution, is make a
backup of your ~/.kde some times. I do this automatically and very easily
every week with konserve.
If you still want to test what is happening, try starting kopete from a
terminal, and paste the errors, or install debsums, and run it in the
applications or libraries that you are having problems with.
