Bug#315433: Might be the same problem.
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have a similiar problem on my IBM A30. But the bug is such strange
that I did not fill a bug report til now.
When I startup my laptop with kdm enabled the kdm is somwhat of broken.
Not completely but I cannot switch to console or if I login the X is
Then I have two ways to solve it:
1. I stop kdm by using the menu to get to console. This let me login in
the console but the username I type is hidden. (Of cause killing the
kdm from remote helps too.)
2. Not start the kdm at startup. If I start kdm after startup by hand
everythink works well. The problem only happen on startup.
I never use any suspend so I cannot say if there is the same problem.
For now I just switch to xdm which works fine also on startup.
Strange is that the kdm worked long time. I encounted the problem the
first time about a half year ago or so.
The system on my laptop is sid.
