That's not a problem, the Wheezy theme is Joy.

So you installed a clean KDE Squeeze and upgraded to Wheezy?

That looks like a wrong way to do it. In any case, kdm shouldn't
directly use spacefun or joy but use a generic name so it's correctly
handled on upgrades. What puzzles me is that Joy is available since
months and you're the first one to report an issue with upgrades.

I have no knowledge of KDE so I'll let involved people reply, but
there's something very fishy here.
