KDM auto-login problem after upgrading, auto-launching other programs with kdm

Running Debian Unstable on a Tablet PC (Fujitsu Stylistic 3500) and
recently apt-get upgraded to KDE 3.2.1. Liking the changes so far, but
there's one thing that's really causing me great trouble. Due to the
lack of a keyboard on a tablet PC, I had had it set to auto-login to my
normal user. However, since upgrading, I get a dialog box with
"Authenticating scott... Authentication failed" on boot. I've tried
various tweaks and enables/reenables of options, but haven't had any
luck. I've fiddled with the kdmrc, but I'm still somewhat new to KDM
config and may be missing something.
Other corollary is whether or not it's possible to launch other programs
with KDM, in this case an on-screen keyboard. It'd be handy to keep the
KDM login for security reasons, but having to have a keyboard around to
log in cramps the tablet PC design a bit. I've been using gok, which is
really designed for gnome and has a few fiddly issues. Anybody know if
KDE is ever going to have a native osk?
Very happy otherwise, great work!
