Nearly, but not quite.

I change the line which starts IceWM to read
kdeinit icewm

The desktop gets as far as redrawing itself on screen but then after about
0.25 seconds it dies and the machine reverts to the xdm login screen.

Error output reads:

DCOPServer up and running.
icewm: Warning: Obsolete option: TitleBarCentered
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
kdeinit: Fatal IO error: client killed
KLauncher: Exiting on signal 1

Running kdeinit after the window manager has run has no effect on
kword startup times.
