I confirm as I faced this yesterday, but concluded that my systray was
the culprit. Possibly there is something common there.

I moved ~/.kde4/share/config, added the default panel, and moved back
the config. As such, I have a default panel now but at least I have a
task manager and a system tray to view my apps. This also means the
issue is with the configs somewhere. I have not done anything else
since I'm a little busy with stuff and I cannot deal with this kind of
breakage ATM.
