Bug#593344: kde: Can not switch to new user session

Package: plasma-desktop
Version: 4:4.4.5-1
Severity: important
File: kde

I use to hace two KDE sessions open, for me and my wife. This is accomplished by opening one of them from default KDM (VT7), then going to the menu and exit -> switch user, which used to lead to a new KDM in VT8 where the other session can be started.
But today we've detected that this does not work as yesterday: Going to menu -> exit -> switch user causes a small widow to appear at the top of the screen with a red shutdown icon (not clickable), the string "Sesiones de escritorio" (Desktop sessions) and a X button which closes it. No way to change user.
Moreover, locking the screen and trying to switch user from the unlock password window does not offer the needed option "Open a new session", just "Change to session" with only one option: actual VT7 locked session.

This worked perfectly until last reboot yesterday (previous reboot and session opening was less than a week ago).
