	Okay.  I didn't know that the same settings appear in two different files.  
(Why is that?)

	I did these steps:
1)	rm ~/.trinity/share/apps/kate
2)	rm ~/.trinity/share/config/kate_*
3)	rm ~/.trinity/share/config/katerc 
4)	opened Kate, which asked to select a session; chose Default Session
5)	Window -> Tool Views -> Hide Documents
6)	Window -> Tool Views -> Hide Sidebars
7)	closed Kate
8)	reopened Kate; Success!

	So apparently one has to remove at least the first two configuration items 
(not sure about katerc) to ensure that the tool views settings are properly 
accepted.  I see now that Kate did not recreate 
~/.trinity/share/config/kate_*, and only default.session exists in 

	Thank you all for helping clarify how this works.
