I would guess that you are preserving your home directory or at least the same partition scheme from the "bad" system?
I am not a KDE user so cant be much help with specifics, but things to check:
1. Delete anything like ~/.kde/... in the user home directories.
2. Is /var on a separate partition? If so, check if /var/tmp is actually full/permissions...
3. Force empty of existing partitions before reinstall.
Can you post your partition scheme and how you assign them during reinstall.
