The /.config should not be there, but where to put it is another story. Perhaps you will be interested in this: Bug 249217 kauth helpers create .kde and .config in /

sorry to resurrect this thead, but reading the blog of Tomas (Slax's developer), I discovered that kde developers blame dbus for it, but really seems like a bug in qt that will be fixed probably in version 5.
BTW Tomas, unwillingly, patched dbus to solve it.

When in doubt... see what the standard says.

IEEE Std 1003.1-2001:

Quote:
HOME
The system shall initialize this variable at the time of login to be a pathname of the user's home directory.

Quote:
shall

For an implementation that conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, describes a feature or behavior that is mandatory. An application can rely on the existence of the feature or behavior.

For an application or user, describes a behavior that is mandatory.

Qt expecting $HOME to be set seems in-line with the base standard.

This is fixed in RC4
Code:
a/dbus-1.4.20-i486-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched to set HOME properly to avoid a /.config directory.  The fix is
  a little ugly, but seems harmless enough (and is less ugly than /.config).
