That setting was not present, and as I said in my reply to Leen Meyer,
KPowersave doesn't appear to get as far as reading its rc file before
crashing. Something else is starting it and that's where I'm going to
have effect a change.

The only file anywhere in the ~/.kde hierarchy that mentions KPowersave
in any form (besides its own rc file) is .../share/config/kickerrc.
This file contains two seemingly relevant entries:

1) The string "kde-kpowersave" appears among a large comma-separated
list in the setting FirstSeenApps from section [menus].

2) The string "/opt/kde3/share/applications/kde/kpowersave.desktop"
appears in the setting RecentAppsStat, also in the [menus] section.

I have the stack back-trace from the KDE Crash Handler, but since this
is not a debug version of the program, there are no symbols, just
addresses:
