kdm restart and back into root shell from KDE

Hi all,

I got two KDE-related newby questions, which I posted also on the FreeBSD mailing list, but up to now without response.

1. How do I restart a KDE session after I changed some config files? In 
Linux this is

/etc/init.d/kdm restart

But since there is no init.d on FreeBSD, I'm stuck. 

2. Is there any way I can shutdown KDE and get back to a root shell? If I choose 'log out' 
from KDE, I am still in the KDE environment and fixed to choose another user to login again.
If I choose 'shutdown KDE', it issues a shutdown command to shutdown my PC, and that's also not what I want. I just want 
to shutdown KDE and get back into a root shell. Think it's an easy thing to configure, but where?

any help would be appreciated,
