Because, indeed, it does: it tries to write to $HOME/.kde , which is
outside the build directory. That's not allowed; it's a bug (even if no
report has been filed).

Unlikely; more likely is that other architectures happen to have a $HOME
which actually exists inside their buildd chroots. That doesn't make
your bug nonexisting there; it just happens not to hit it.
