Ran into a strange problem ...
Kubuntu 12.04LTS/KDE4.8.4 ...
For whatever reason my plasma desktop crashed yesterday. Couldn't get it
to come up again, so I deleted all the plasma files in the home
directory to start from scratch.
I must have done that in the "protected mode" unknowingly ... since

Did as requested and ended up with an "upside down" desktop. Visually
everything is upside down, but buttons still seem to be where they are
supposed to be on the desktop (screenshots: http://goo.gl/N4tVF and

effects that is.
Anyone have an idea what went wrong here and how to possibly correct it?
