Have you tried rename of .kde and check if kde will start?
Have you had kdemod3 working with the current install?

I renamed .kde, still didnt work, and yes, KDEmod3 did used to work on this install. I can't see why it would just fail.

Do you get any useful information when you startx from a terminal ?
After that I would probably modify ~/.xinitrc and put
The default splash ... KDEmod-Fancy throws an error on startup for me at present but does not lock the system ... selecting another splash (like KDEmod) gets rid of the error ...
I guess you have already been through this sort of process & searched for similar issues from others already ...
modifying /opt/kde/bin/startkde is probably not a great idea
