This update has changed my login manager to "ssdm" with the Maldives
theme from "kdm" which is what it has been set to for years, its
also set my keyboard to US even though all my locale settings are
still English-UK. Yast is still reporting kdm as the display
manager and keyboard as UK.

Any ideas? I am going to shutdown and reboot to see if its just a
freak situation.

It seems that /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager is no longer honoured and
that you will need to make a symbolic link default-displaymanager in
/etc/alternatives to /usr/lib/X11/displaymanagers/kdm.

This is how my system looks.... Any known reason for both of these links
being needed?

ls -l /usr/lib/X11/displaymanagers/ | grep display
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 40 Oct 20 16:13 default-displaymanager ->

ls -l /etc/alternatives | grep display
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Oct 24 15:25 default-displaymanager ->

That's how 'alternatives' work

Thanks for the link. I think the choice of login manager should still be a
config option in something like Yast/systemsettings5, seems like a backward
step to go back to the cli to change things.
