As far as I remember (having had the same problem short ago), the problem does 
not reside in kdmtheme package, but in desktop-base

$ dpkg -L desktop-base | grep default/kdm

This is the subject of bug #407799 [0], which solution is to install the 
package from experimental.

Alternate solution is to remove desktop-base package or only 
the /etc/default/kdm.d/10_desktop-base file.
