KDM + environment variables


I need to set a per-user environment variable that is set on login. How can I
do that in a KDM/Debian-compatible way (i.e. without requiring root to do
dirty things in /etc)?

I'm using KDM for login. I want to be able to select different window
managers from the login prompt, so I cannot just set up an ~/.xsession file
that sets the variable and then starts kde.

Is there anything that gets executed upon login (and before starting the
window manager) on a per user basis? Or is there at least a chance to set the
environment variable in a KDE config file (KDE is what is mostly used)?

Thanks in advance,

Klein bottle for rent -- inquire within.
