  Correct me if I'm wrong, but the settings of your user's keyborad
  layouts shouldn't affect what happens in kdm.

  I belive you can easily find a couple or more bugs related to
  non-working keyboards in kdm. IIRC, it's due to an upsteam change in
  the kdm/Xservers file. We will discuss providing a workaround for the
  3.3.2 packages.
