kde not starting as normal user

Hello folks,

I have a very ugly problem with kde - I'm searching this bug for a long time (7-10 Days)-
but I was not able to solve the problem.
Maybe there are some "real" kde-gurus which only smile about this problem,
and can give me a solution.... :-)

On my system normal users are not able to login in kde - it doesn't matter if I startup
kde from GDM or from console with startx.
If i startup kde i can see for a short period of time the dotted x-screen, after that i saw my kde2 backgroundcolor,
then the procedure returns back to console or GDM.
The kde splashscreen is not shown....

The courious thing is that starting kde works very well for the root-user, and starting other
desktops (i.e. gnome) as normal user works also.

Therefore I suppose that this is not a xfree-problem - although there are
some messages in the Xfree-Log.

I'm not sure since when the probblem occures - three things were happen:

- My girlfriend powers off my box without making a shutdown *grr*
- I played with the euro-key-support (iso8859-15)

What can I do ?

My system-data:

- Debian-Woody
- KDE -- 2.2.2-13
- XFree86 -- 4.1-0-13
- Kernel 2.4.17
- Matrox G450 Dualhead VGA-Adapter (running with xinerama)
