kde 4.8 workspace problem

Upgrade an oneric machine to 4.8. Now the kde desktop is unusable. Login is OK, but I have the following problems (there may be more): 

- Windows don't get redrawn or come to the front unless they are first minimized and then restored 
- Keyboard input is delayed several minutes before appearing on screen, bot mouse moves normally 
- Can't access the application launcher 

I tried replacing ~/.kde, but with no improvement 

Everything works fine if I launch in safemode. 

Any thoughts on the root cause? 

Is there an enumeration of what is inactivated in safemode so I can troubleshoot?
