Possible further clue as top what has gone wrong: When I try to run a
KDE app (dolphin, knoqueror etc) from within xfce, I get :
QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme
I think it is the Bus Error that is significant because if I do the same
thing for as another user who has not got the broken kde, you still see
the QGtkStyle error (and a whole lot more messages too) but then the
dolphin window opens OK.
