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/ .kde.org
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!
