I had (now and then) similar problems with kde widgets after major kde
upgrades. I solved weired things like this just by removing the widget and
adding it again.
If this still doesn't work, you could try to rename the folder ".kde4" in your
home directory and re-logon. this forces kde to create a new (and clean)
default profile. The drawback here is, that you'll loose all your kde related
Kinda off topic, but one of the things that I just noticed this week was how to add icons to the KDE desktop. I was *certain* that all I had to do was right-click the icon when I called it up in the menu then tell it to go to the desktop. Well, try and try, I couldn't find it. Then I thought to myself, "I wonder if I have to unlock the widgets first." And that's all I had to do. Makes sense, really, doesn't it? But it's not intuitive that right-clicking the menu items changes behaviour.
