OK, finally getting somewhere.  I did:

apt-get remove kde kdm
dpkg --force-depends -r xfree86-common xserver-xfree86 xlibs
apt-get autoclean
apt-get install xfree86-common xserver-xfree86 xlibs
apt-get install kde kdm
dpkg-reconfigure kdm

With kdm debugging enabled, I'm now getting an error in
syslog to the effect that "can't start
/urs/X11R6/bin/XF86_SVGA"  I've uninstalled XF86_SVGA and
reconfigured xfree.  Manually starting xfree with "startx"
works fine, using xserver-xfree86.  I assume that kdm still
trying to use the old server is the result of an error in a
configuration file somewhere.  Which configuration file
would cause kdm to use a different server than startx?
