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

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

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

There are still issues, when I was running through all the tests with moving configuration files out of the way and back again, the underlying libraries stayed the same.

What I've encountered is that the lock-ups are related to upgrades of underlying libraries. I use prelink after each upgrade of packages, and on re-reading the kdeinit5 manual page today, discovered the KDE_IS_PRELINKED environmental variable, which I've now set in the lxdm start-up script's call to start lxdm and run up iceweasel successfully under KDE plasma since then.
