Oh, so that isn't refuring to the specific application global file?

I am trying to restore the config to the original state (as far as the user is 

For example in konsole they use a gobal config to set the toolbar's text to 
"text alongside icons".  In ktoolbar it remembers that "text alongside icons" 
is the default value.  It then may load the current setting of "IconOnly". 
When it comes time to save konsole's settings ktoolbar looks and sees that 
the text is set to "text alongside icons" (the same as the default) and it 
calls deleteEntry() to remove the setting from the local config so that next 
time it is run the default value is loaded.
