What specifically do you expect to change with this?

The former starts a new program from scratch by the shell script, which
then continues on, exiting the shell at the end of the script. The
latter replaces the shell process with the startkde process, while
keeping all file handles etc open. Think of it as gutting the core and
putting a new one in while running. I can't remember seeing a case where
shell scripts are used to open files which are then passed on to the
program started by the script. But it's worth a try and might get closer
to the problem.
