Make sure that you told KDM to load KDE.  The first time I logged in it loaded 
twm.  The option for which environment to load is hiding in the menu.

There is actually an icon for it at the top of the preferences menu, which 
isn't enabled by default.  Having an icon in the system menu would be nice

Read the link below for a full description of what's going on with xmms-arts.  
The short version is that xmms and KDE 3.2 use incompatible versions of glib.  
So don't expect this to be fixed anytime soon.
