I remember having a similar problem some time ago: On start, KDE would freeze
in the initializing screen. I am not shure about the background with mouse
pointer and the .xsession-errors file, though.

However, I solved this problem by removing some leftover KDE session file. I
am not sure which file it really was, but as it is a fresh install, just
remove the .kde subdirectory in your home directory. You could also try
starting KDE as another user, as these files are stored in the home

Hope this helps!
