That's the way I do it, too. I am afraid that there is no other 
workaround than using a different login manager (xdm, gdm), since KDM 
spawns the X-Server and therefore is the place to pass options to it.

Won't work. In which homedirectory do you wan't to place it? KDM is 
started before any user is logged in (that's the idea behind a login 
manager ;-) ).
