Oops, didn't see your response. Start New Session isn't gone by any means; 
like I said, I still have it, using KDE 3.4.1 (now from experimental) -- it 
must be something with your configuration. Have you tried 'apt-get remove 
--purge kdm && apt-get install kdm'? Then login through the default KDM 
configuration and check the Switch User menu on the KMenu for the Start New 
Session option.
