I even managed to find this file myself, no mean feat considering I'm a n00b, 
I adjusted the last two lines accordingly. Restarted the computer, not just a 
log out, I logged in and the icons were the correct size but were 
low-resolution and pixelated. And the ones that had previously been missing 
were still missing (which is like 9 out of 10 of them). For some reason these 
malfunction was causing Kgpg to crash on startup, and it still didn't work 
even once I had adjusted this settings file. It seems I'm not the only one to 
have experienced this and looking around the net it seems other people have 
too either to greater or lesser degrees than me. I'm not sure how/why this 
icon size setting can be the root of such massive problems, it doesn't even 
need root privs to do. In my experience anytime when you need root privs to 
do something you have the potential for a lot of destruction.
