Bug#186729: xdm: dpkg --configure xdm gives message on kdm then halts

Package: xdm
Version: 4.2.1-6
Severity: grave
Tags: sid
Justification: renders package unusable

Updated - and xdm throws an error about configuring kdm. This
prevents xdm from completing, and so x-window-system will not
complete either. This (at present) means that I have no X running :-(

Here's the output of the upgrade:

Setting up xdm (4.2.1-6) ...
Please be sure to run "dpkg --configure kdm".
dpkg: error processing xdm (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 10
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of x-window-system:
 x-window-system depends on xdm; however:
  Package xdm is not configured yet.
