I would log out and check if the second Xorg process is still there, to
see if the problem is tied to your account or not.

Then I would temporarily switch to xdm or gdm and check if the anomaly
is still occurring. This will hopefully tell us if we have to start
poking around in the kdm configuration or in the configuration files of
X itself.

/var/log/kdm.log might also be worth a look.
