No, kdm does not read your ~/.bash* files by default since it is not a 
'login shell'. See also:

AFAIR there are two ways to change that behavior:

- change in your Xsession file the first line from
  #!/bin/sh --login

- include the following lines in your Xsession file:
  if [ -r $HOME/.bashrc ];  then
  .  $HOME/.bashrc
