you might want to have a look at http://debianplanet.org/ or read about bug
#196575 (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=196575)

something with xserver-xfree86, xlibs and gcc-3.2/gcc-3.3 seems not to work as
expected resulting in breaking xauth with xdm/kdm (while gdm seems to be working
for many). 

3 most popular workarounds:
A: downgrade to version 4.2.1-6 of xserver-xfree86, xlibs and related packages
B: don't use kdm. use 'startx' or 'gdm' instead.
C: upgrade to XFree86 4.3.x (unofficial but interesting if you have modern
grafix hardware)

greets, f.soul
