Out of curiosity, did you check the contents of the old .kde for differences
and/or recently-changed files?

A keyboard setting may have changed, and maybe due to some unrealized
shortcut or key combo.  (For example, if I'm thinking hard and hold [Shift]
down for a long time, it brings up a dialog asking if I'd like to activate
"'Slow keys' and 'Mouse keys'".)

Good luck!
