Bug#266106: kdm: no keyboard and starting on wrong console
forcing KDM to the 7th virtual console seems to fix my keyboard problems.
Today I restarted KDM 10 times with a modified Xservers config without any
keyboard problems. The other way, extending the kdmrc config file works also
(tested 10 times, too). So it seems that the KDM keyboard problems only
depend on the number of the virtual console used.
But in my opinion kcontrol should add the kdmrc entry automatically.
Otherwise there will by many broken old kdmrc files.
