I wonder how to find out.

Maybe you could go into the xterm from xinit and try to run kdeinit and/or 
kded directly, and see if they report anything useful when run that way.

I don't know.  If I had the box in front of me, I might be able to puzzle this 
out, or I might not.  It feels no better than 50/50 if I were sitting at your 

You have a much bigger problem than I was betting with the previous 
suggestions, that's for sure.  I don't think I've ever faced something as 
broken as what you're looking at right now.

You need an expert, not a generalist like me.  I'm not sure where to suggest 
you go to find that expert either, I'm afraid.

Very sorry.
