Okay, if you just want to shut the thing up for these accounts and don't care
whether or not the updates are performed, try opening
~/.trinity/share/config/kdeglobals in a text editor for each user, see if there's
a section [R14 XDG Updates], create it if there isn't, and stick the following
values in it: 


(it's possible you may need to increment the Version key to some larger value
before this works.)

If that doesn't work, the nuclear option is to edit the starttde script to prevent
the updater from being called--comment out everything from

if [ -d "$tdehome" ]; then
  # Run some R14 updates.


# Please see tdestartupconfig source for usage.

to do that.

Hope that helps.
