How do the 'migration' scripts work if going from R14->3513?

  I ran into a weird problem. I replace R14 with 3513 on a test box. I deleted
all /var/tmp/ files and my ~/profile, but forgot to delete /root. When I checked
the /root directory, it had /root/.kde, /root/.kde3, /root/.kde4 and /root/.trinity.

  After several apps were run kdesu, I noticed many 'tdxxx' directories had been
created in /opt/trinity/share/xxx. This was after I had deleted /opt/trinity
completely. Could the migration/update scripts cause this?

  Do the scripts even handle a R14->3513 install?
