I finally solved the problem... the brute force way. I created a
new user account, established that KDE login works, then I moved
all files and directories from my original home directory to
the new home directory, except those that are already created in the
new account, and making sure the ownership of all files are switched
to that of the new account. I then deleted my old account and renamed
the new account to the old name.
Whatever it was, some file was causing KDE to become wedged. By
doing the above I was able to get a fresh start as far as KDE is
concerned, and it seems to fix the problem.
