Well, years ago, when I was using KDE3, a gentle soul advised me to
rename my '~' dir, deluser my_user_name, adduser my_user_name, and then
copy the important directories, one by one, from the backed up '~' over
to the new '~' .
You should make sure that the adduser command assigns the new user the
same UID as the deleted user; that way, the new '~' and the backed-up
'~' will have the same ownership.
By logging out and in again after each copied directory, and testing
out the issue, I was able to pinpoint exactly which directory was the
culprit. I can't recall anymore what the problem was, and the procedure
admittedly is a bit tiresome, but it definitely worked for me.
I just hope the MTA doesn't change all the above '~' instances into
Certifiable Loonix User #481801
