The system: FreeBSD 4.9-stable
I have KDE 3.14 installed and all was working well for a number of weeks. Root and one other regular user account had been able to start and use KDE and Gnome. And both GUI environments operated normally.
A few days ago KDE under root account wouldn't start (startx). Howevere KDE started under a regular user account works perfectly (and continues to do so).
Furthermore, Gnome (2.4) under root starts (half-way?) up to the point of the banner and then hangs.
Here is the error message produced by the KDE crash:

Question: There is just ONE install of KDE so, how can this happen? Both user accounts start-up the "same" KDE right?
I've tried comparing the .kde and .kderc files between the user accounts but I can't find any diffences (or I don't know what to look for).
Any hints or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
