On further examination the problem was buried in my home directory. I tried 
various tricks and finally just deleted the .kde folder and all its contents.  
That managed to screw up my kmail settings but not my saved messages. 

Now Krita 1.6.3 is alive again.   But I have to redo my mail settings.
