This is often due to a screwed up configuration, perhaps due to having 
kde3 and kde4 versions overwriting each other at some point.  I don't 
have time ATM to find the specific files, but for the user, they're 
usually under  ~/.kde/share/apps/* (if it has a whole config dir) or
~/.kde/share/config/* (if it's a single rc file).

Of course, ~/.kde can be a versioned form ~/.kde4 or whatever, as well.

It could be the system config normally under /usr/share/<same subdirs>, 
also, but that's less commonly screwed up unless the distribution screwed 
it, or unless the sysadmin went editing the system config.

I'd suggest simply deleting (or renaming) the config, particularly the 
user config, with the application shut down of course, then restart it 
and it should write a new config.
