That file seems to be part of Qt. How can it be
created outside your $HOME when you startx? That's
somewhat strange... how _can_ that happen?

	% cd
	% touch ../bla
	touch: ../bla: Permission denied
	% touch /bla
	touch: /bla: Permission denied

Only root permissions allow the creation of files
in that specific directories.

Neither /.config or /home/.config should exist.
It shoud be ~/.config for your user account.

I also have ~/.config/Trolltech.conf. I'm not using
KDE, but one KDE program, maybe other Qt-based programs.
Maybe one of them has installed the directory (at
this correct location)?

	% ls .config/

Okay, seems that other toolkits also use it. :-)
