I didn't know the answer either, so I forwarded this to the kde-devel mailing 
list. David Faure advised that it is a bug. The problem is that code that 
writes paths should not use a generic writeEntry() call, but needs to use 
writePathEntry() which should fix the absolute path.

The specific example that you provided:
eg. in ~/.kde/share/config/startupconfigfiles, I have several refs to:
/home/bob/.kde/share/config/kcminputrc etc.
comes from kdelibs/kinit/kdostartupconfig.cpp
[ based on 
http://lxr.kde.org/search?v=3.5-branch&filestring=&string=startupconfigfiles ]

It is actually just a cache (it will be regenerated if it doesn't exist), so 
you could just blow it away.
