This may reveal other issues...

aral:90126 Z$ kbuildsycoca4 --noincremental

kbuildsycoca4 running...

kbuildsycoca4(73086) KConfigGroup::readXdgListEntry: List entry Categories

And it exits immediately.  I do not see an option to be lenient or ignore
errors.  (Although maybe it was not treated as fatal, as fixing the above
and re-running also exited immediately.)

I have to admit that I thought incremental kbuildsycoca4 was run as part of
kdeinit, though, so running it by hand should not be necessary unless kde4
is not initializing itself properly on OS X.
