If you have upgraded from 3.0.x there have been lot of of changes in 
config area of the KDE up to the 3.3.x and settings could not be 
compatible anymore - it is my personal experience. Try following:

1. LogOut KDE (right click to desktop, Logout user ..., Terminate this 
session only) - you get the KDM LogIn dialog
2. Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get the virtual ASCII console 2
3. LogIn as working user
4. Save old $HOME/.kde directory using e.g.: cd $HOME; mv .kde .kde.OLD
5. LogOut using exit command
6. Alt-F7 to get the KDM LogIn dialog back
7. LogIn as working user - KDE should re-create the $HOME/.kde directory
8. Of course, during this process you have "lost" all old personal 
settings and you will have to set up personal preferences again
9. If results are not satisfying restore the old $HOME/.kde using 
similar procedure as described from 1. to 7.

Good luck !
