  That has been it this whole time!! When did tsak begin killing the graphical
login? Moreover, why did that "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to begin" (pop-under) the main
xdg chooser window so many time before it finally gave me the dialog? I must
have started tdm/kdm 15 times and it never gave me the "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to
begin" before. That's weird...

  Oh, well, at least we know what the culprit.


  Here are the changes/"cherry picks" I would propose for 3513-sru kdmrc
generation (kdm/config.def). The kdm/tdm changes are necessary to avoid
conflicts with kde4 (e.g. stale .pid file, etc..):



-#SystemShell=/bin/bash  (optional change - all distros I know use bash)

-#UseSAK=false  (disables graphical login if enabled)

-Preloader=/opt/trinity/bin/preloadkde  (preloadkde does NOT exist)

  I have attached a patch for consideration or to help identify commits that do
