I installed the fixed libc6 without seeming to fix the KDE problem.

I looked at Debian-KDE found a reference to
http://wiki.debian.net/?DebianKDE where I found libsensors-1debian1
s/libsensors-1debian1_2.7.0-6_i386.deb> which is missing from sid.  Clicking
that link will D/L it which can be installed with dpkg.  Then you can
install kde-core from sid and maybe that will fix it for you as it did for
me.  It may take a couple of login's before KDE3 shows up in the list and
maybe two logins to KDE3 before it works.

That didn't do it for me yet... but I found another interesting thing:
is it correct that the permissions on /usr/X11R6/bin is 700?
I get complains from Xsession that it cannot find certain scripts in that directory...
Mine are 755

I guess xserver-common sets this permissio as I first chose 'root only' at the question who should be able to start the xserver... I later changed it to 'anyone', but it seems that didn't fix the permissions...
Did you try Andreas' suggestion of removing .xsession?

If this can be confirmed it should be a bug in the xserver-common script.

I won't be able to get back to this until tonight.

Good luck,
