I think the problem is that /tmp/ksocket-global doesn't exist on your
system. Can you try the attached (quick & dirty, not to be put upstream)
patch ?
The seemingly infinite loop is because of a missing error check on the
opening of the pipe, and since nothing interesting gets out of ::read,
it is called again and again.
The same issue applies both to kdmgreeter.cpp and sakdlg.cpp.
