A friend of mind did the KDE-3.5.1 update on his FC4 box using the Fedora
updates-released repo and did NOT have this problem I know this doesn't 
much as far as confirming it is OS related but it ccould help to narrow the
problem down to kde-redhat repo AND, my problem only occured after doing
the redhat-menus update so your conjecture could be right.
I had to use kde-redhat because Fedora no longer supports updates for 
FC3 and
Legacy hadn't released andy KDE updates.
