I know it can be a pain, having gone trough it myself on numerous occasions...

Mostly, I've found that the problems are with KDE's internals, and not so much 
with the programs.  So what I do is start with a virgin ~/.kde dir and copy 
back the configuration of the programs (kmail, amaroK, ksysguard,..).  When I 
upgraded to Fedora Core 4 with redhat compiled kde (as oposed to my custom 
kde build), I found that most of the configuration screens were not 
appearing, and worse, that the settings I did do were very volatile.  All of 
this was solved by letting the system recreate its ~/.kde but ymmv
