Yah, not exactly my most informative message. Specifically, 
/etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc was not replaced, just renamed, such that the
previously working KDM screen and background have been replaced by
whatever defaults are compiled in.

$ ls -ld /etc/kde/kdm/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 18 08:57 /etc/kde/kdm/

$ ls -lcr /etc/kde/kdm/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   22 Feb 18 08:57 Xwilling -> ../../X11/xdm/Xwilling

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  360 Feb 18 08:57 backgroundrc

A separate but obviously related issue is that, after the update, I
wind up in some window manager-less failsafe session (just a single
xterm running) rather than the KDE session that I had. In addition,
regardless of which "Session type" I select on the KDM screen, I get
the same window manager-less failsafe session. I'm not sure that the
update to kde-config or kde-config-kdm did this, but something happened
during the update such that restarting X broke the desktop config that
had worked fine for months.
