I know nothing of NFS so can't help with that, but I sure recognize the
spirit of that delete/recreate post-login script you came up with, and
commend your creativity! =:^)
(FWIW I have a long-open kde4-plasma bug where plasma starts but won't
recognize my customized activities and starts with a new, blank activity,
despite loading my panels just fine from the very same plasma-desktoprc!
But killing and restarting plasma-desktop loads the activities just fine,
altho if plasma-desktoprc is left writable it'll add a new blank activity
every time until I have dozens of them, so I gotta keep it and
activitymanagerrc read-only. So since kde 4.9 or possibly 4.10 I've had
a post-login script that kills and restarts plasma-desktop. What a
hack! But it works! So like I said I recognize the spirit and commend
your creativity! =:^]
I'm hoping plasma5 solves that issue, tho so far I've not been able to
see since the couple times I tried it, kwin kept crashing as it
apparently doesn't like my mainline-freedomware xorg/mesa/linux graphics
card/drivers, and I had to delete kde5/frameworks5/plasma5 and go back to
a working, if hacked, kde4/plasma4, since 4 and 5 don't coexist well on
the same installation and thus I couldn't keep 5 installed and updating
while trying to get it working. =:^( )
So hope you have better luck than I did with a "real" fix, but meanwhile,
I do respect your hack! =:^)
