were missing -- although the Hiding tab in the Panels configuration notebook of Control Center still showed the correct settings as if the missing lines were actually present. Someone much more familiar with Linux than me might have put 2 +2 together and deduced exactly where the problem was, just because the panel did appear very briefly and then went into hiding. So it was clear that it had not been deleted -- and I even mentioned that at one point.

The file was otherwise uncorrupted. Odd that such a thing can happen spontaneously to a file without making gibberish of it.

Yes......a bug which I said hasn't ever been fixed in KDE. A work-around that always works, is to put at the bottom of your /home/*/.profile file:

cp /home/*/.kde/share/config/kickerrc /home/*/.kde/share/config/kickerrc.org

This creates a copie as a backup when you first login. If you loose the panel again, then go to a konsole login, then copy the kickerrc.org file to kickerrc and you're back in business.

Sorry........should read that you need to kill the KDE desktop (ctrl-alt backspace), then login into konsole, etc. When you relogin, you'll have the panel.
