Chown Foibles

Continuing to set up my new 64-bit install.

Any attempt to chown -R thisuser:thisuser /home/thisuser/.*

For example,to reset permissions of hidden items, will change ALL users' home 
folders, everything. Actually, on the surface, this might seem correct 
behavior because of the '.' This is, of course, a catastrophe. Their kde, etc, 
is unusable.

How can I do this?
