Sorry... that was an error on my part.  I saw a gui login and just
took it to be the kde one.  It did not look like the gnome one.

Turned out not to be the kde login after all.  So to this point I have
never yet raised a kde login.

I can get an X session by going to a virtual terminal and starting
fluxbox on display :1 with startx -- :1 
(and with .xinitrc set to execute startfluxbox)

Sorry for the mis-information
