If you refer to adding:
LD_BIND_NOW="true kdeinit +kcminit +knotify"

This is wrong, because without the quotes it assigns true to LD_BIND_NOW 
and the execute kdeinit. 

By adding the quotes you assign to full string to the variable.

That means that kdeinit isn't started there (and probably LD_BIND_NOW is 
tested as "true"). But kdeinit is still started later on, so I wonder the 
what's doing exactly that line there.

I've all my machines linked to bash and still three of them fail, and one 
with X4.2 works

I think is related to a variable initialisation in startx|startkde, but is 
not this one.
