Is it Gnome that fails to start or gdm?

Not sure what the difference is (sorry).
When the system starts I get multiple messages along the lines of "Gnome
Display Manager [FAILED]".
startx gives me what looks like a gnome environment, minus the
lockscreen and whatnot.

gdm is the Gnome Display Manager. This is the screen where you can choose
the user and enter your password. This application is also responsible
for the lockscreen, suspend and so on.

KDE has is own display manager (KDM) so I think when you installed KDE
KDM has messed up something.

just to be sure:

apt-get update
apt-get purge kdm
apt-get install --reinstall gdm3
dpkg-reconfigure gdm3
