don't use x-window-manager. If using kdm don't use *default*..use kde2...if
using startx change /usr/bin/kwm to run /usr/bin/kde2 instead of /usr/bin/kwin.
As I stated at least once before...
x-window-manager is for window managers and not session managers.../usr/bin/kde2
acts as a window manager (setting up kicker and all of the other pieces that
make up KDE)...thus by Debian policy cannot be x-window-manager. The proper
fix for this is for a x-session-manager to be setup...this has been taken
to the X guy as that is where it has to be implemented. However to have
/usr/bin/kde2 set as a x-window-manager alternative is a BUG as it can break
