As I explained, that's quite a complex file.  I never did figure out what 
the problem was in mine.  I simply deleted some sections that appeared to 
be orphaned, others that appeared to be for duplicate widgets, etc, and it 
eventually worked.

But start with moving the file elsewhere (with kde or at least plasma-
desktop not running, of course), so you get the defaults, and see if that 
fixes the problem and you indeed get sane defaults.

If it does, you've nailed the file, and can then decide whether you want 
to spend the time necessary to trace the way the sections work and edit 
appropriately, or whether you'd rather simply start with the defaults and 
delete the screwed up file entirely.

If it doesn't... try moving the other plasma* files in the same dir 
elsewhere as well.
