This is the "KDE 4 does not recognize the kde-settings default settings" bug. 
We use a kiosktool setup and for some reason KDE 4 doesn't support this 
properly yet (it's one of the items on our hitlist for Fedora 9). So what 
happens is that if you use the KDE 3 kcontrol to set the selection mode to 
double click, KConfig sees that SingleClick=false already appears in the 
system-wide default configuration and refuses to write it out to your 
~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals file. KDE 4 then does not see the system-wide 
default configuration and defaults to what is its default, which is 

To work around this bug, comment out or remove the SingleClick=false line 
in /usr/share/kde-settings/kde-profile/default/share/config/ and add that line 
to your ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals file (where ~ stands for your home 
directory), in the [KDE] section.

I hope this bug will be fixed soon, it can cause other kinds of breakage too.
