That *should* stop it... Maybe you are doing something wrong? The code
in startkde that starts kaboom checks for this file:

if [ ! -f $HOME/.local/kaboom ]
        kaboom -style plastique
        if [ "$RET" != "0" ]
                exit $RET

There is one other thing you can try: divert kaboom. I have used it in
the past on some machines that I wanted to disable kaboom completely.
I have a script here that can do all the work for you:

I guess adding it to skel would also work.
