[PATCH] Make startkde work with not-default KDETMP and KDEVARTMP

 right now if you set KDETMP and KDEVARTMP to a non-existing directory, 
startup of KDE will fail (lnusertemp cannot create the directory). This 
can happen if you want to have a system where you can run both KDE4 and 
KDE3 session for the same user and you need to set different temporary 
 The main problem lies in lnusertemp which has its own idea how a 
temporary directory should look like, completely ignoring what the user 
set up, and I didn't want to mess with it, so I rather simply changed 
the startkde script so it creates the temporary directories if they do 
not exist, just like it's done for the KDEHOME directory.

Comments are welcome.
