And this happens when the shell script ends, which will be almost immediately 
after starting it.

Move your script to /usr/env, make sure it has an .sh extension

Files there are sourced by the startkde script, thus their lifetime is the 
whole KDE session's lifetime.

Or use your own script without --exit-with-session
