I recently upgraded to KDE4.7 from the 11.4/kde47 repository.
When at the KDE Greeter (login) dialog screen, I select Menu-Remote Login (or
alt-R, same result). An XDMCP Host Window opens displaying other machines on my
network that are up and willing to accept Xdmcp login. When I move the mouse
over the XDMCP Host Window to select a remote host, the widow closes and I am
returned to the normal login screen.

I have the same result on three different systems once upgraded to KDE47. All
worked fine when KDE46 and earlier.
I am able to login to the remote machines via the CLI using ssh ipaddress

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot openSuSE 11.4/KDE47
2.AT Greeter (login) screen, select Menu-Remote Login (or alt-R)
3.XDMCP Host Window opens, displaying hosts willing to accept login
4. Move mouse over the XDMCP Host Window, window disappears.
Actual Results:
The XDMCP Host Window disappears, I am back at the normal login window. I am
able to login to the local machine.

Expected Results:
I should be able to select a remote machine and start a remote X session

This procedure worked KDE46 and earlier
