           Summary: user configuration not properly loaded
           Product: konsole
           Version: 1.6.6
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: giorgioincantalupo yahoo it

Version:           1.6.6 (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

After a new installation of Kubuntu I copied the old home from old server to the new server. Now, when I launch konsole I do not get the "real" user I created. I expect the konsole to behave as the normal linux console but it does not. If for example I type the "groups" command inside Konsole, I get wrong groups (maybe the old ones? Not sure...) while if I type "groups myusername" I get the right groups. Bizarre! I noticed the normal console out of kde (AlT + F1) gives the same right groups and it is fine!
To jump into the "real" user from Konsole I need to make a "sudo myusername"....in this case I get the right groups.
It is like Konsole keeps old info about groups which are now changed. This creates problems with file permissions.
I looked inside the .kde hidden subdir to find some hidden konsole setting but found nothing so I think it is a bug.
If it is not a bug but only some hidden file to delete inside my .kde dir, please publish the solution somewhere on your site so it could be useful to other people with the same problem as mine.
