I'm not a KDE person, but my first suggestion would be to move the .kde
directory out of the way and see if that fixes the problem.

He could also try
 * logging in to GNOME instead of KDE
 * logging in from the command line

If he succeeds at logging in from GNOME, but needs kword (and kword
fails with the same problem as his login) then he will at least be in a
position to run dcopserver manually.
