I'm not sure which one but you can try to diff the files in 
/home/your_user>/.kde3.5/share/config/ and see what is different between 
that and the other account.  If you move files around, don't forget to 
change the permissions on the file.  I would think the owner would be 
the biggie.  Group may be fine.  Mine groups to users anyway.

One weird problem tho.
