Since a Konsole gives the proper environment you might be able to track down 
the trouble maker by trying to restart kdeinit and see if that helps. If not, 
try to restart kdesktop and see if that helps (unlikely since it's normally 
klauncher that does this, but given that kdesktop tries to find matching 
icons it might by trying to be too smart and pass a full path to klauncher).

Failing those two options, try rebuilding ksycoca and repeat the two. 
Ultimately after rebuilding the sycoca and restarting both kdeinit/klauncher 
and kdesktop it just has to work, since the Konsole from which this is all 
done is also correct.
