That's because KDE doesn't actually control your screen settings; that's 
handled in the underlying X layer, which is who is also doing the weird 
scrolling effect.

First, try doing CNTL-ALT-keypad + to cycle through the builtin screen 
resolutions and see if any of them behave more sensibly.  If they do, you can 
edit your XF86Config file to make that setting the default.
