Problem with kde screensaver on FC6

I have used kde as my desktop for years and I DO NOT want to get back
into the "my favorite desktop is better than yours" flame war.
However, I have recently done an install from scratch of FC6 on a
former FC5 box. The ONLY thing retained is home directories. And that
is probably where the problem is.
One user (me, unfortunately) cannot configure the screen saver - any
other user (privileged or regular user) can click on the "Configure
screen saver" button and the window pops up with a scrolling list of
screen savers. When I do that, I get ths configuration window but the
list is unpopulated.
I am assuming that it is a setup snafu on my part, but I have tried
moving ALL of the .kde, .gnome, .X* (.Xdefaults, .Xclients, ... etc.)
and every other config dir to another location so that they would be
recreated, but with no luck - the same results always occur.
Any suggestions on this one would really help (yes, I have previously
posted this on the kde-linux list but without any answers).
Thanks - FC6 is a really solid release and my hats are off to the
