Bug#454927: kdebase: KDE fails to start due to ~/.kde/share/config/kcminputrc

Package: kdebase
Version: 4:3.5.8.dfsg.1-2
Severity: normal

After doing dist-upgrade yesterday KDE failed to start. When splash screen
showed that it is loading the desktop, screen went black and returned to
the login prompt (can't remeber if X restarted).

After file-by-file copying of my original ~/.kde I found out that using a
fresh ~/.kde/share/config/kcminputrc fixed the problem. I haven't manually
edited the file ever, so I would have expected it to work after

This is what I had in kcminputrc originally:



And this is what it contained after clean first login:
