I did the above, but it didn't help - it actually made things worse.

I tried this before when you suggested it earlier but I see the same
problems with all users. It looks like there are hundreds of config
files besides the hidden ones associated with a user. Not good news
because it looks much harder, to me, to try to fix those.

I checked re the latest kwallet problem, and there seems to be perhaps
a hundred just for the kwallet 'complex'.

Doesn't look good from this side...

Thanks for the help.
