I just had this occur with a workstation and discovered the issue is as
System BIOS is set to local time
System boots and expects system clock is set to UTC
kdm starts a timeout (120sec?) on X
NTP gets a time update from the server
Time now jumps by 5 or 6 hours, hence KDM declares that X has timed out

My solution was to uncheck the "Hardware clock set to UTC" in Yast2 "Date and
Time" and ensure that the BIOS clock was reasonable.

You might want to check if this is also your issue.

It would be nice to have a solution from the openSUSE team, perhaps allowing a
delay on the startup of the ntp client, have kdm wait for ntp to get a refresh,
or even have kdm try the timeout twice.
