If you are using gdm as the display manager, but are using kde as your desktop 
environment then the only problem I can see is that both gnome and KDE 
libraries are being loaded into memory. I would expect that less memory would 
be used if you stick with gdm+gnome or kdm+KDE setup. But then, if you are 
using any of these beasts, you are probably not worried about memory issues. 
Are you?
