And indeed, kdm now contains its own internal sessreg routines, so users 
were being registered/unregistered twice.

Question is - how to fix? Disable the internal sessreg, and continue using 
our own? That's the easiest option, since we just have to change an option 
in kdmrc, but if we do it by modifying kdmrc, then users who don't update 
that file will still have the problem. Of course, yanking out our own 
sessreg patches mean that any user that doesn't update Xstartup and Xreset 
will also still be affected.

I'd rather modify one conffile than two, and the fix is simpler, so I'll 
proceed with my first suggestion unless anyone can think of a good reason 
to do otherwise :)
