I've noticed that, too, on two seperate machines.

The kdm config is now in /usr/share/config/xdm.  The file you want is 
Xservers.  This one stumped me for a good long while, as I need +xinerama 
appended to the vt line, and I couldn't figure out why it wasn't working.

I see this too, but what above point are you referring to?

An apt-cache search for kwifi brings back nothing.  Where did you get this 
from?  If you did do a .deb install, run dpkg -L <packagename> to see all the 
files that it installed.  I do that and grep for 'bin' all the time...

Add -dpi 100 to /usr/share/config/kdm/Xservers, and restart.  That should do
