No ideas, but the same symptoms here. I've been using startx from a
character mode shell and that works fine, and since I'm going to upgrade to
SuSE 8.0 as soon as it arrives I figured I could live with it until then.

But I've been all over my system looking for kdmrc files and none of the
ones found explain the behavior of the kde3 kdm I see... same as you,
everything is set to defaults, you try to change it with kcontrol and it
appears to have no effect at all.
