Kubuntu 8.04 desktop settings files

In the Kubuntu 8.04 with the old Kde3 environment I am plagued by a bug.
In the Systems Settings I configured the usual number of 8 desktops, where there are two desktops after installing.
After applying the settings for 8 desktops I have 8 desktops. But after a restart I get 2 desktops again.
Somewhere in my home dir there is a dir /.kde/share/config/ where all kinds of files are to be seen, but not what I am searching.
Where does Kde store the number-of-desktops-parameter?

How about setting it to 8 desktops and then saving your KDE session?

If you have it set to use the last saved session that's why its doing that.

Are you using compiz? There are some issues with the desktop pager and the 3-D "cube" desktop. I can't remember the exact details, but if you are not using compiz try just un-installing it.
