Bug#541136: kaboom deletes all customized kde4 settings

Package: kaboom
Version: 1.1.1
Severity: grave

Hi, kaboom just caused serious data loss. I have a brand-new install of
Debian sid. I installed kde4 (kde-standard metapackage). I start kdm,
and on the first run of kde4, kaboom does not run. I customized the
settings, turned on desktop effects, etc.

I then rebooted. On the second start of kde4, kaboom ran. It explicitly
said that existing kde4 settings would be unchanged. I told it to not
backup KDE3 data and to not perform any migration. Instead, it deleted
ALL my existing KDE4 settings. KDE3 was never installed on this system.
There was no reason for kaboom to ever run.

..kaboom.log is attached.
