Wow, that one, I didn't know. Where is that info supposed to be? I feel I'm 
missing a couple of things. In any case, $(kde-config --prefix) gives me 
"/usr" and "/usr/env" does not exist.
I tried putting a script called path in ~/.kde/env/ with just the following 

export PATH=~/bin:"$PATH"

After I logged in again, I opened Konqueror in webbrowsing mode and when I 
clicked the "Home" toolbar button, it crashed. I opened it again and it 
worked fine. Anyway, neither clicking the "Execute Shell Command..." entry in 
the Tools menu in Konqueror, nor hitting Alt-F2 to run a command shows me the 
PATH change I expect.
I logged out and changed the ~/.kde/env/path script to:

export PATH=~/bin:"$PATH"

and gave it execution permission. I logged in once more, nothing crashed this 
time, and I still have no change in the PATH variable.
