This is very strange.  Mandriva 2009 Spring doesn't normally suffer from this.  
The only thing I can suggest is that you kquitapp, then rename plasma-desktop-
appletsrc to plasma-desktop-appletsrc.sav (and probably do the same for all 
the plasma-related files in ~/.kde/share/config, then restart plasma.

You would be back to a blank canvas, as it were, but the newly created ones 
may well be fine then.
