I screwed up a bit, but corrected my error. Here is what I did:
steven at Studio25:~$ cd $HOME/.kde/share/config ls kwin*
steven at Studio25:~/.kde/share/config$ cd $HOME/.kde/share/config
steven at Studio25:~/.kde/share/config$ ls kwin*
kwincrystalrc kwinrc kwinrulesrc kwin_update
kwin.eventsrc kwinrc.old kwinrules_update
steven at Studio25:~/.kde/share/config$
I notice that in the past I must have been here before, because there is
a kwinrc.old. This is becoming very fun, because lights are going on in
my mind, and I am retaining a lot of stuff. If kwin doesn't continue to
be a problem, can I leave things the way they are, or should I remove
the .old file since it has been replaced.

I don't understand this part.

I am sure. It doesn't happen now, but before, I would type in the
server password, then a request would come to enter the kwallet
password. I presume to enter the server password, I don't know, but it
happened every time. I used the old em that I liked so much. I will
never forget that one.

That was the reason I attempted the fix. I liked having kmail working,
however, every time I sent an email, I had to type in the server
password, then the kwallet password, it would be rejected. I would try
to cancel the repeated requests until I finally clicked x in the corner
to make it go away. As long as I tried to put in a password, it would
reject and return. Right now, I sent myself an email; I did not have to
type any password at all. It simply sent as it is supposed to. I think
that part is fixed. I don't know about kwin yet. I will have to use
the computer a while to see if it still is a problem.
Deep thanks friend. I posted a thank you, however, I may have forgotten
to indicate RESOLVED. I don't receive my own posts, so I won't know.
This was a most stressful problem. It is a glorious feeling now. It is
strange, I don't have to write the path to these resolutions. Before, I
would have. In fact, when I removed the folders, even though they were
gone, I was able to trace my steps to their former location. That is
how I noticed kwallet had been re-established.
You are taking so much stress from my learning process, Nils, I really
appreciate your patience.
Cudos, my friend,
