Bug#406939: kdm: Cannot change welcome message

it is /etc/kde3/kdmrc , GreetString value. Since kdm 3.5.5a.dfsg.1-3 , we have 
added kdm customization support. We use /etc/kde3/kdmrc as a base file 
but /var/run/kdm/kdmrc is really used. BTW, i tried to reproduce the bug, 
changing default string "Welcome to Debian at %n" to "Welcome". I have always 
the default string. It seems it doesn't use GreetString value but an 
hardcoded one. i'll try to go further.
