I've got it sorted now...

$KDEHOME isn't set (or at least echo $KDEHOME produces no visible output).  
However, the two likely looking files from a slocate were 


Renaming the first one to /kwin.eventsrcold and restarting X (couldn't just 
log out of KDE since nothing was working!) has sorted it.

I'll get Frances to mail you a copy of the file when the PC's back at her
