Thanks for the fix. It would have taken me quite some time to think of
that, since I have that set to some other location, that /is/ in my
(FWIW, my /var/tmp is a symlink to /tmp, which is on tmpfs, so it always
starts off clean @ boot. But some of kde's cached stuff, favicons, etc,
works best if saved across reboots, so when I setup /var/tmp as a symlink
pointing at the tmpfs, I had to figure out which var to set to point kde
at a different cache location. $KDEVARTMP, FWIW. Here, it's pointed at
$HOME/config/cache, which is obviously in my homedir, as I stated. And
it's under my $XDG_CONFIG_HOME setting too, which is $HOME/config, so in
my case, moving that out of the way for testing, as I suggested, would
indeed have fixed the problem. But it wouldn't have fixed yours, so
thanks for the fix report indeed, and provided I recall it the next time,
I'm sure the next person to have a similar issue and post to the list
thanks you, as well. =:^)
