That's what I did. But
- after upgrading I had the same problem
- I reconfigured kdm
- after some time I had kdmrc renamed to kdmrc.backup and a new zero
length kdmrc (with the effect Andreas mentioned).
- after renaming kdmrc.backup to kdmrc it was OK.
OK, I'll observe it...
(To see others having the same problem gives me the hope that my
system isn't hacked :-)
