Kde 3.1.1 won't start

I'm experiencing a very strange behaviour  and maybe someone can explaing 
what's going on.

First of all my system :
	Debian testing
	gcc 3.2.3
	XFree 4.2.1
	fontconfig from gnome2.2 packages
	Kde 3.1.1 build from sources with konstruct

Everything was running ok (gnome and kde with font antialiased perfectly) for 
almost 2 weeks. The only problem was konsole that was using some bad default 
fixed font or encoding: the whole terminal was full of square and I had to 
change to some personalized font by hand.
Yesterday I've decided to understand more deeply how was Xft2 configured and 
twicked with its configuration files. Don't know if this is a coincidence or 
not but since then I can't start kde anymore (X and gnome still are working 
with good font antialiasing). 

I get the following messages :

kbuildsycoca: Recreating ksycoca file 
kbuildsycoca: Database is up to date 
DCOP aborting call from 'anonymous-1819' to 'kded' 
ERROR: KUniqueApplication: DCOP communication error! 
DCOP aborting call from 'anonymous-1809' to 'kcontrol' 
ERROR: KUniqueApplication: DCOP communication error! 

If I remove every conf file (even .qt directory) then the preferences wizard 
starts but when finished kwin dies and kde won't start.

I tried to revert to my original font configuration and nothing changes.
I don't know what to do. Don't want to recompile the whole thing again also I 
don't see any reason why it could change anything without changing something 

Someone has some hint ?
