Looks like they only honor the settings from gnome-settings-daemon (which
doesn't run by default in KDE), not the GTK+ settings.
I had a possibly-related problem; in fc10 I could, suddenly, boot into
Gnome but not into KDE. I assumed that I had somehow trashed the KDE
config, but the problem was in the installation of the nvidia driver,
from ATrpms, which was loading and failing to work with X.org modules.
OK after adding the nvidia ModulePath lines to the Files section in
xorg.conf. See nvidia-graphics177.80 (or similar) package description.
