Hi Sebastian,

reverting is maybe the badest idea to solve a problem, since this also
means, that you loose the roaming support in KDE 3.2..

What exactly is the problem ?

What I think (untested) is:
a) readPathEntry() should be compatible and work in 3.1 and 3.2
b) writePathEntry() in 3.1 (not in 3.1 BRANCH!) was broken and wrote always 
    $HOME at the beginning of strings. This should be solvable with an #ifdef KDE_IS_VERSION(3,1,2)
c) writePathEntry(pKey, QStringList()) and "QStringList readPathEntry(pKey)" are only in
   KDE 3.2. Maybe we should backport them to KDE 3.1.3 ?

Are those the problems ?
