I blinked. /usr/lib/libkdeinit_desktop.so is a part of the package
kdedesktop 3.3.2-1. On the machine that works, it is present. On the
machine that fails, it isn't.
For some reason or other, it hasn't been installed. Or perhaps it has
been sent to lost+found by fsck?
apt-get --reinstall install kdesktop
That downloaded and reinstalled the same version of the kdesktop
package, and when it was complete there was a /usr/lib/libkdeinit_desktop.so
on the system, and kdesktop would start.
Then "Run command" could be run again, both from the KDE menu and by
