Thanks for the update!  I don't do proprietary (see the sig) so wouldn't 
have even pretended to know about the nvidia thing, but it is worth noting 
that while I had assumed a kde setting problem, the first step of testing 
a new $KDEHOME proved that assumption incorrect, so one then falls back to 
another plan, possibly bisecting the whole $HOME.

And apparently you did fall back, and eventually found and fixed the 
problem.  Good for you! =:^)
