I think it watches the moutpoints listed in the /etc/fstab file to see if 
their mounting state changes so KDE can update assoicated icons.

No. Your home directory is already mounted when KDE starts up and will still 
be mounted when KDE shuts down and it will not change to unmounted during 
your session.
