As it happens, I ran into the same problem just yesterday.

My theory is this: it does take effect, but once KDE loads after X, it 
also loads keyboard layouts, overriding the change.

I have yet to verify this (I rarely log out or reboot), but I think if 
you move the line to a script in ~/.kde/env/ and add a sleep statement 
(with, say, 20 seconds delay) before it, it might work. Another option 
that might work is to disable keyboard layouts in the KDE Control
