The symptoms could indicate a difference in the environment when startkde is
called from the login manager and when called from a shell.
Both methods you described as working involve a interactive shell, whereas the
shell executing startkde from KDM or GDM is not interactive and might not
have read the same environment configuration files.
Another possibility I can think of is a missing (not yet started) D-Bus
session bus in the case of launching from the login manager. The distributor
might have not added to all login manager startup routines
Do you use KDM or GDM or a different login manager?
