KDE settings missing after upgrade to RC2

After upgrading from 8-BETA to 8-RC2 all my KDE settings were gone and my home has these dirs / links
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 5 May 26 2009 .kde@ -> .kde4
lrwxr-xr-x 1 engels engels 5 Nov 10 22:15 .kde.preUpgrade@ -> .kde4
drwxr-xr-x 4 engels engels 512 Feb 18 23:46 .kde4/
drwxr-xr-x 4 engels engels 512 Dec 28 09:21 .kde4.preUpgrade/

Why is kde.preUpgrade a link to .kde4?

.kde.preUpgrade is a link, because the original .kde is a link to .kde4. We back it up separately, just in case the user has been messing around, and created an actual .kde dir :)

However, the renaming action is intentional for the moment. Upgrading from 7.x -> 8.x requires new KDE4 configs, and the upgrade option is used to repair as well, and the .kde4 profile is one the things which may need a repair. I'm going to make a note on the wiki for 8.1 though, to see if we can improve this functionality, or provide an option to keep the original config.
