Running .xsession is suited by me :-) But, what I make to insert in Xservers, 
if I'd like to change this behavior? Xservers now contains only:

--- /usr/local/kde3/share/config/Xservers ---
# Xservers - local X-server list
# This file should contain an entry to start the server on the
# local display; if you have more than one display (not screen),
# you can add entries to the list (one per line).
# If you also have some X terminals connected which do not support XDMCP,
# you can add them here as well; you will want to leave those terminals
# on and connected to the network, else kdm will have a tougher time
# managing them. Each X terminal line should look like:
#       XTerminalName:0 foreign

:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X

### Don't change these two lines; they are hints for genkdmconf. ###
### Version 1.99 ###
--- /usr/local/kde3/share/config/Xservers ---
   With Best Regards.
