After tinkering a bit, I found the source of my problems and wanted to share
it with you. It was a stale lock file located in the ~/.qt directory.
I use QtCurve as my default style, and it seems that there was a bug in the
version i just upgraded.
According to Earl's suggestion, I renamed my ~/.kde to something else and
started copying config files to the new ~/.kde. Being a desktop-look-freak,
I wanted it to look as comfy and eye-pleasing as it was, so I just went to
System Settings to change the style to QtCurve, and then... the System
Settings crashed!!! Now THAT was a clue!
I opened a konsole, and did a "locate curve", just to see what would come up.
To my surprise, I found a .qtcurvestylerc.lock, just lying there. Deleting it
was the cure.
Thank you all for your kind help.
