i don't knwo how kubuntu handles both versions on the same system, but my
gentoo box has 2 different .kde dirs and a .kde symlink that points to the
current kde session. try to check if kubuntu handles things in the same way.
if that's the way it works, then you'll just need to move elsewhere the 2
.kde3.5 and .kde4.1 dirs and then recreate them by doing a fresh login and
reconfiguring the stuff again.
