i for one use 'kdm -debug 7 -nodaemon' for relatively obvious reasons.

not the entire screen is black, but only the xterm window.

indeed, with +sm it does not spin any more. but it does not change
for the hell of it, suddenly i can't fully reproduce the problem any

after i ctrl-c'd kdm, things seem to be back to normal. ?-}
