Bug#275484: "Start New Session" feature missing due to missing entries in /etc/kde3/kdm/Xservers

Package: kdm
Version: 4:3.2.2-1
Severity: normal

In the out-of-the-box configuration of 'kdm', the "Start New Session"
feature found in the Lock/Logout-Applet and in the KDE start menu is

The source of the problem are commented out entries in
'/etc/kde3/kdm/Xservers', which looks as follows after the package has
been installed:


:0 local@tty1 /usr/X11R6/bin/X -nolisten tcp vt7
#:1 local@tty2 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X -nolisten tcp :1 vt8
#:2 local@tty3 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X -nolisten tcp :2 vt9
#:3 local@tty4 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X -nolisten tcp :3 vt10
#:4 local@tty5 reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X -nolisten tcp :4 vt11

[...more comments...]

The additional server lines (at least one) ':1', ':2', ... must be
uncommented in order for the "Start New Session" feature to work.

This should be the standard setup for the 'kdm' package.

(The feature is also missing in the most recent 'kdm' package from
'unstable', which I have verified by hand.)
