I am glad that it worked.
I am even more delighted that you did the copy via mc, since my commands 
were buggy indeed.

Imho it should have read:
cp -rd .kde/

r means "recursive copy"
D means "copy empty directories, as well".

So my original command most probably would have left you with an 
unusable saftety copy. ;-(((

Sorry for my mistakes and again, it is great that your panel is back!
