Installation problems (kcontrol, kicker, kfmclient)

I have upgraded KDE from 3.0.x to 3.1.1 using RPMs on RH8.0 and, while 
things are generally working, I ran into the following problems:

1. kcontrol does not display any of the modules to be configured (left 
hand side of the window), so I cannot configure anything.

2. When selecting "Configure Panel ..." in kicker or the K-Menu, no 
configuration window is opened, so cannot configure it.

3. When clicking the "Home" icon on the desktop, konqueror does not 
start. I had to change the "execute" string to "kfmclient openURL" from 
the original "kfmclient openProfile filemanagement" in order to get it 
open a konqueror window.

In an attempt to fix things, I removed all of KDE, deleted ~/.kde and 
reinstalled the RPMs. Still, none of the above got fixed. And yes, I did 
install kdelibs* first and kdebase* second.

Any hint as to what may be wrong would be greatly appreciated.
