Thanks for the suggestions.

The [General] section in my ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals gets created when I 
set the fonts using Control Centre, but when I log out the [General] section 
gets removed. The font settings also seem to get put in ~/.kderc which does 
not get deleted.  Both of these files are owned by the user and have rw 

I also tried creating another user, with no ~/.kde3.4 directory or ~/.kderc 
file and got the same effects.
