Question KDE menu transparency


I am having a very annoying problem with the colors of my menus and icons in KDE.
Yesterday, I moved my Linux partitions from my old hard drive to a larger one, and did an "apt-get dist-upgrade" (I use a Debian-based system).
After apt-get finished running and I rebooted the machine, I am having problems with the colors of my KDE menus. For example, when I press on the "K" to get at my programs, the menu was coming out with a nasty bright blue color. I messed around with the settings, and found that if I went to the Control Center and changed the "Effects" under "Style" so that the translucency type is set to XRender Blend instead of one of the Software options, the problem with the menus goes away. I still have problems when I right click on one of my desktop icons though, the icon turns into a nasty bright green color.
So I think the problem is obviously with the transparency effects, but I have no idea what went wrong after I updated my distro, nor where should I even start to look into solutions.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,
