I didn't say that it applies only to kdm. We could for instance, apply
it to xdm...

Make up your mind, please. If you don't believe that it used to work,
then it is not a regression. 

It is still a bug, and should be fixed, of course. Just like the
corresponding bugs in the interaction between kdm and gnome, since, as
Jesse pointed out, relying on kde working with kdm and gnome working
with gdm doesn't buy you anything on systems which have both kde and
gnome users.
