Hi, I didn't find any command to control kdm (in a shell script), so
when I use another window manager than KDE, it is impossible to switch
to another session (excepted by login in a terminal console, and
launching kde after that, solution that I want to avoid for my
non-graphical allergic users).

So I had to switch from kdm to gdm, that provide a menu item to open a
new session, and integrates with xscreensaver, providing a 'New login'
button in the 'this session is locked' dialog.

This solution doesn't satisfy me, because I feel that it prevent the
adoption of kdm independently from a wm... But, it works ;-)

Cheers,
Christophe
