[PC-BSD Testing] /.kde4/share/apps network corruption

That is the world's fastest support reply ever.

The old 7.x file probably got in there because this machine was originally a
7.x.x with the 8.0 installations via the upgrade function through 8.0-Alpha,
-BETA, -RC, -RC2.  The copying of the ./kde4/share/apps files probably
corrupted the installation configuration.

I was motivated to do that copy in order to retain my application settings
in Dolphin, Dolphin-Admin, Konqueror, Krusader, Krusader-Admin, window
colors, etc. in which a lot of time is invested and which do not come over
in the upgrade installation like  /.Mozilla and /.Opera settings get
retained.  I won't be doing that again.

For now, it seems like the best action is to reinstall the upgrade
(actually, I will do a fresh install) and not make that same mistake again.

Thanks Kris.
