+1: When all else fails, chattr +i config files you don't want messed with by rude installation scripts.

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"

I already have done that and until the update to 12.2 it worked. Now it
doesn't anymore. So there's either been achange in how things should be
configured or there's a regression.

I think if you look at a virgin 12.2 /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager you'll find interplay/overlap with kdmrc has been removed because someone has finally been trying to get some progress made on

I've not seen the problem you describe, but I don't use genkdmconf. I symlink /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc to /etc/kde/config/kdm/kdmrc so that it can be found where all global config files belong in /etc.[1] Then I edit it directly, and make an in place backup so that when changes are made that I didn't make I can easily figure out what they were and revert if necessary. A couple I always make are UseTheme=false and Theme=. What upstream provides for the basic look of the login manager are fine for me, making KDE look like KDE instead of something not KDE.
