The bugzilla contains good details. The problem is that when kde-config is used in read mode there should be nothing else happening other than reporting the requested information. kde-config will create a profile directory all the time of one does not exist. When used in a non-interactive shell script, the default location is the system root (not user root) and kde-config will create a profile directory in the system's file system. Repeatable 100%. KDE 3.5.10 and KDE do this too.

Might be HAL related, but as I stated in the bugzilla report, I never have this problem in 3.5.10. We had a conversation in the list about the problem in December and Tim agreed this is a bug:

Discussed in the list: A solution is provided in the bugzilla: to provide a check box to disable/enable transparency.

I added a screen grab to the bug report.

Yes, that happens, really. :) Read my comment from March 29 in the bugzilla for a possible cause.

The problem never occurs in KDE 3.5.10.

Probably so. Num Lock retention never worked in KDE 3.5.10 for me either. My best approach was to always select the Leave Unchange check box. That seems to produce the least problems. The problem is not entirely KDE either. The kernel is set to to toggle Num Lock off. X is set to toggle Num Lock off.
