KDE 4.1 login fails for new user

I removed the ~/.kde directory and tried to log in using KDE 4.1 (SVN
yesterday). It showed the error message "Could not start kstartupconfig4.
Check your installation." before aborting the login. The error code being
returned by kstartupconfig4 was 3. Repeating the login attempt resulted in
the same error.
By my reading of the code, kdostartupconfig.cpp calls
KStandardDirs::locateLocal( "config", "startupconfigkeys" );
and then tries to open the resultant file name in read-only mode - hence the
error. When you start with an empty ~/.kde, that file won't exist, so AFAICS
kstartupconfig4 will inevitably return the error code 3. (The directory
~/.kde/share/config was created with correct user permissions, presumably by
that call, so there's no problem with write access.)
