KDM now does its own paths.  They are in: "kdmrc"

If you want the: "profile" script executed when starting an X session 
with KDM, you need to have your: "Xsession" script a login script.  You 
need to change the first line to:

	#!/bin/bash --login

However, KDM will still overwrite your PATH.

You should find these files in: "$KDEDIR/share/config/kdm/"
