I mainly run freecell and klondike here, but haven't seen the problem,
and you say it happens on freecell, so I should have if I had the problem.
FWIW, here's my output (gentoo, for anyone wondering) for those packages
[ebuild R ] kde-base/kdelibs-4.7.1

USE="(-aqua) -debug (-kdeenablefinal)"

(Obviously I still have the sources cached, thus explaining the 0 kB
Looks like you have a few more flags turned on than I do, on kdelibs, but
nothing leaps out as related to kpat... except for nls, perhaps.
I assume you're fully update-deep-newused, revdep-rebuilt, and depcleaned,
The next things I'd suspect would be something in your user or hardware
config, probably either widget-style (Oxygen, here), display/opengl
(Radeon hd4650 w/ the freedomware drivers, kms mode, classic as gallium
is broken, here), or corrupted kpatrc related.
Have you tried moving your $KDEHOME (normally ~/.kde/) out of the way
(while not in kde of course), to go all defaults and see if it's a user
config issue? Or what about simply removing $KDEHOME/share/config/
kpatrc , to see if it's a corrupted kpatrc problem.
(Obviously, trying those in the reverse order makes more sense, kpatrc
