I think that is the point. It went the way you explained until now. But it
seems that they changed the way kdm works.
And the Session tab fronm kontrol center you mentioned is gone in the beta.
I didn't find any place to configure what choices it gives you regarding the
window manager. I grepped the whole kde dir for the names of the WMs that
are offered and I do not use in hope of finding a file, but nothing.
Though I think that starting the "default" WM starts the WM configured in
~/.xsession. But I was very tight on time yesterday so I couldn't double

Anyway: I hardcoded kdm from 3.1.4 in the init file for X and now got the
"old" one back and all is well for me right now.

Thanks for your help.
