It should be possible to remove gmd and use kdm instead, although that should 
not affect the sessions itself.
If Evolution starts under a default KDE session, it could be autostarted or be 
part of a saved session.

Since this seems to be a SUSE issue, you might get more detailed help on a 
SUSE list or forum
