I'm keeping rkward-devel in CC. Others may be interested in compiling on 
Windows (and the associated pitfalls) as well.

Ok, we're getting closer to the issue.

1. Make sure your newly compiled rkward was really installed:
  cd %KDEROOT%\build\kdeapps\rkward-20121211\work\mingw4...\
(replace the dots as appropriate, of course)
  mingw32-make install
(usually emerge should have done that, but it kind of looks like emerge got 
confused somewhere along the way).
Double-check the file modification time of D:\kderoot\k\bin\rkward.exe and 
rkward.frontend.exe to make sure they are really the files you compiled, not 
some older version.
2. Remove D:\kderoot\k\bin\rkward.bat . This is a leftover of a previous 
installed version of rkward. The current version does not include this. This 
should have been removed by "emerge --unmerge rkward". I'm not sure, why it's 
still there.
3. Remove the desktop icon, too. You can re-create it, when all other causes 
of trouble are ruled out.
4. Open a console, and do
  cd D:\kderoot\k\bin
(optionally "rkward.exe --debug-level 5", if problems persist).

If all this works, you can create a shortcut to D:\kderoot\k\bin\rkward.exe on 
your Desktop.

Well, only in case problems persist: No, I do not need your build tree, or any 
other complete folder. I need *two text files* located somewhere in the 
Documents and Settings folder inside your home directory, *outside* your build
