No idea what caused the problem, but if you haven't already resolved/worked 
around it what you can do is rename your $HOME/.kde4 directory and log back 
in to your KDE 4 session. That'll put you back to the default settings. If 
you get your desktop, then you can start moving things from your old .kde4 
directory into your new .kde4 directory and when the problem re-occurs, you 
should have a pretty good idea of what caused the problem.
