Is there any documentation on what configuration file(s) kwin_x11 uses?

You can try starting kwin with strace, like this (when it's not running at the
moment):

strace -f -e open kwin_x11 2>&1 | grep config

Kudos to your persistence in finding the root cause of the bug!

Best wishes

Thanks, I only thought of using strace after I noticed the lack of documentation on where kwin_x11 obtains configuration information.

(I've saved that command line for reference).

Way back I used to use the SVR4 truss command to find what files programs were accessing.
