I have this problem with plasma-netbook 4.4 rc1 on i386 Karmic, and had 
to start plasma-netbook manually using Alt+F2.
I did not have a ~/.config/autostart directory, and have removed 
~/.kde/. In fact I created a brand new user and home directory and 
plasma-netbook still didn't want to start.
In the end I configured /usr/bin/plasma-netbook to auto start using 
System Settings -> Advanced -> Autostart.
