What's the trick to make changes to this file stick through invocations

This is no good since the actual defaults are apparently a "SUSE" theme
(which doesn't exist and hence kdm doesn't start) and "root", which will
put up a pesky password box that doesn't actually accept a password when
I try to do a shutdown from my session.

I have linked /var/adm/kdm/kdmrc.sysconfig to /dev/null to get rid of
those pesky warnings that there are multiple sections of whatever in the
config. If I don't do that kdm starts with the KDE theme...

To get ugly:

a.) replace genkdmconf with a copy of /bin/true, and make it immutable
via extended file attributes
b.) make /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc immutable, same way

Use a "better way", modify /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager to:
i.) point to a existing theme: DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME="openSUSE"
ii.) let all do the shutdown: DISPLAYMANAGER_SHUTDOWN="all"

Or: log a bug at bnc to remove that behavior from genkdmconf
and to correct /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager .
