Bug#570478: kdm: cannot open theme file @@@ToBeReplacedByDesktopBase@@@ --> KDM does not start

Package: kdm
Version: 4:4.3.4-4
Severity: normal

Recently, after some upgrade I guess, KDM stopped working and displayed the following message instead: cannot open theme file @@@ToBeReplacedByDesktopBase@@@.

A quick fix is to set UseTheme=false in /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc

Also the Login Manager configuration tool in System Settings does not let me configure anything at all: everything is grayed out.
