Now this is interesting.  I'm running KDE 3.5, so this may not happen
on earlier versions.

My confusion was caused by the fact that Kubuntu no longer uses
kcontrol directly.  Now, when I select "System Settings" in my KDE
menu, I am actually launching "systemsettings", not "kcontrol".  When
I followed your "settings:/System/", I was accessing the kcontrol
module, and I immediately found the paths icon, just like you said I
would.  But, it is NOT present in the System Settings displayed on my
computer by default.  I've double checked this to make sure I'm not a
blind idiot.  It's just not there in the pretty cleaned up version of
Kcontrol that kubuntu wants me to use.

Thanks!  This really should not have been that hard!
