Do you have such an entry in /etc/X11/gdm/PreSession/Default: 

/usr/bin/X11/sessreg -a -w /var/log/wtmp -u none -l $DISPLAY $USER

Does this program exist? (apt-get install xutils maybe?)

I think there should be an option somewhere in konsole that let's you
specify to write to /var/log/wmtp when opening a new term.
