[arch-general] kde-4.5.4 loads kde3 kicker and background (even with ~/.kde & ~/.kde4 removed)

	I need to know if this is an arch packaging issue or a kde.org issue. On my 
arch box with all kde4 updates through today, I launch kde4 and my kde3 kicker 
and the kde4 plasma panel are both present:


	So I moved ~/.kde4 figuring it was the problem and launched kde4 again. Still 
it pulled in my kde3 kicker and background. Huh?

	So I moved ~/.kde and ~/.kde4 to make sure there was nothing kde (3 or 4) 
related in my home directory and I launched kde4 again. To my surprise, kde4 
loaded it's plasma panel and then proceeded to load the default kdemod3 kicker 
and kdemod3 background?? See:


	Obviously something is very wrong here. kde4 should not be loading the 
kdemod3 kicker or background. Looking at the newly created 
~/.kde4/share/config files, the kickerrc file contains the following:

15:42 providence:~> cat .kde4/share/config/kickerrc

	Double-huh? Why would kde-4.5.4 create a kickerrc containing kde3 entries?

	Let me know if you think this is an Arch packaging issue or a kde.org issue 
so I know where to file the bug. Thanks.
