[ubuntu-uk] Unwelcomed desktop sharing......

I have installed kubuntu 6.06 and version 6.10 onto different
partitions, with a shared swap partition and a common partition for /home.

For each version I use the same login details. My intention is to
continue using 6.06 as I have been  and occasionally have a go with
6.10 to assess any differences.

I was initially surprised, although I suppose I should not have been, 
that the
second install (6.10) shared the desktop wallpaper and various icons
with the first install (!) - same /home of course.


Thinking about it now, it is evident that a lot of user kde stuff will
obviously be shared unless I take some avoiding action.

What I would like to have is separate and different desktop
configurations for each installation, and would be grateful for
suggestions about how I now arrange for a different desktop
configuration for the 6.10 version.
