Thanks, Thomas and Mostafa. It does not work in my case, as I have the
following /etc/sysconfig/desktop file, which is not the default one:

DESKTOP="KDE"
DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"

There is a workaround to have, even so, two X sessions running simultaneously:

1. crtl+alt+f1

2. login into the desired account;

3. startx -- :8

One can switch between the two X sessions with crtl+alt+f7 and crtl+alt+f8.

I think it would be worthy to implement a more straightforward way of
achieving this for people like me who have the above
/etc/sysconfig/desktop, likewise Mandriva has done (and Suse as well,
I think).
