I agree with that, and it's still annoying even if it's not literally 
everything that must be reconfigured. As an example, Kmail and Kate recently 
started making noises in certain situations, when displaying dialog boxes and 
the like, even though I had sound effects turned off. To make matters worse, I 
couldn't find any sound effect settings in the programs themselves. I had to log 
out from Gnome and log in to a KDE session to get at the KDE settings and turn 
the noises off. It didn't even happen with an upgrade to a new Fedora release; 
it happened with an everyday update within a release. I hate that.
