KDE4 plasmoids won't retain position (or resize)

Getting tired of gnome, I decided to switch to kde4. I finally understand how it works (the idea of plasmoids), but I'm having some pretty irritating issues with them.

Whenever I try to move my plasmoids to another part of the screen, or even try to resize them, they immediately snap back to their original position / size.

My first thought was a permission error on my ~/.kde directory, but a quick chown/chmod indicated this is not the case.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Try clicking on that cashew looking thing in the right hand corner and select unlock widgets from the drop down menu. After unlocking the widgets, see if you can move and resize.
