User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020920

Description of problem:
At the beginning of startkde we have :

[ -d "$HOME"/.kde/share/config ] || mkdir -p "$HOME"/.kde/share/config

so the following test :

if [ ! -d "$HOME"/.kde -a -d /etc/skel/.kde ]; then
  ( cd /etc/skel && tar cpf - .kde ) | ( cd "$HOME" && tar xpf - )

is always false and /etc/skel/.kde is never copied in the user HOME...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.execute startkde

Actual Results:  /etc/skel/.kde is not copied in $HOME/.kde

Expected Results:  /etc/skel/.kde is copied in $HOME/.kde

This bug has been present since RedHat 7.3 (see bug reports #52502 & #67583)

It could be fixed very simply by moving the "test || mkdir" line to come
after the "tar /etc/.skel" block.

It was reported to me that this had been done almost two years ago,
so it's somewhat disappointing that this bug is still present.
