Delay on KDM startup fixed. Was Re: delay on KDM startup and KDE startup (3.1)

Oswald and all, 

My delay on SID (KL debs) KDM startup has been fixed and is now ~11 
seconds which is the same as I see on my Woody partition (RN Debs).

I don't run xft so I thought Oswald's comment wasn't relevant.  However
for the last couple of weeks my Phoenix session was not running TrueType
fonts which I prefer (verdana).  Tracking down the problem (KDE apps 
were seeing TrueType), I added the Truetype directory to XF86Config-4 
(this didn't do anything as I AM running xfs).  I then added Truetype 
(/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Truetype) to the catalogue = parameter  in 

This fixed truetype fonts  in Phoenix and ALSO fixed the KDM startup 

My fonts in kdmrc are  Helvetica, Times Roman and Charter - I think 
times roman is the Truetype font.  Presumably kdm init (greet) was 
looking for a defined font that wasn't available.
