i had a similar problem after running nautilus from inside kde -- the result was seeing the gnome wallpaper on my kde-desktop, strange mixture between gnome and kde that i couldn't fix through kde settings (they were all ok and still kde was 'overdrawn'!? by gnome) ... till reinstalling gnome

not a clean solution though

Another dirty solution: you could delete the ~/.kde folder. On the next start of KDE, it will be set up with the defaults.

I'd run cp -dpR ~/.kde ~/kde-old first. The only risk I can see then is that the links in the ~/.kde folder to stuff in /var/run and /tmp may also need backing up.

In short, they copy links as links (instead of what they point to) and preserve file permissions. From man cp:
Code:
-d     same as --no-dereference --preserve=link

-P, --no-dereference
              never follow symbolic links

-p     same as --preserve=mode,ownership,timestamps

       --preserve[=ATTR_LIST]
              preserve  the specified attributes (default: mode,ownership,timestamps), if possible additional
              attributes: links, all
