Right.  I guess he like me fail to realize that one need to log in
using the localadmin user and not root. :(

I hope some german speaking developer will reply to him with that

I suspect we need to find a way to make it more obvious for new users
that they should log in using the localadmin user.

One idea would be to modify the kdm config for :0 on the main-server
to preselect localadmin as the user.  Something like this might work:

I'll test it and commit it if it is working.
