[kde-freebsd] KDE 4.12 on FreeBSD 10.0 Thick Client

I am trying to get KDE to work on a diskless client. I am not having
much luck getting the initial environment to come up correctly.
Everything is NFS mounted. System partitions are mounted read only (/
and /usr), things that require writing (/var, /usr/home,
/usr/local/share/config/kdm) are mounted with memory disks or NFS
mounted with read/write.
The issue is when I log in. This happens whether it's a user in the
'local' (NFS mounted) password file or the LDAP that I have now managed
to invoke with a KDE PAM module: I get a black screen with no toolbar
with a 'close a window' red X button where the 'K' menu should be and
two 'new activity' launchers in the upper and lower right corners.
Does anyone have a list as to what KDM/KDE does upon startup (like
copying files to user accounts and the locations of said files) so that
I can track down what is wrong?
