Whatever, I would advise anyone upgrading to kde 4X to start with a brand 
shiney new ~/.kde directory.

I don't rememmber when the upgrade from kde 2 to 3. I probably was frying 
installs and jumping distros regularly so it wouldn't have mattered, but I have 
been traveling through new installs with my home directory all through kde 3 
and retained contents and settings the whole time.

After this past week's experience it is quite clear that the kde 4 aps have 
changed to the point that trying to run them with old rc and other config files 
may be problematic and it is better to rename the old ~/.kde and let kde -4 and 
it's aps create everything new. Then if I want something like my old bookmarks 
I just copy them into the new ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror directory.

A bit arduous for a newbie but a newbie wouldn't be carrying around a /home 
that needs a good garage sale ;^}
