Do you have $KDESYCOCA exported? If yes, then you might need to unset it.
Otherwise, check your cache-$HOSTNAME symlink in $KDEHOME.
The code for the location of ksycoca is KGlobal::dirs()->saveLocation("cache") + "ksycoca",
when $KDESYCOCA isn't set. So you can check the path that this goes into, with 
kde-config --path cache
(Thiago: see why we shouldn't get rid of kde-config?)

This simply means there is no kdeinit module for klauncher, no problem there.
I'll remove the "!".
