This will work for starting KDE, but you need to keep in mind that if 
you do anything other than starting KDE with KDM that your $HOME/.bin 
directory might not be added to your PATH.

While debugging startup/login scripts can be a real bitch, it would be 
better to find out why your $HOME/.bash_profile script isn't modifying 
your PATH as expected.  It is best to do things correctly and the 
.kde/env directory should be used only for things that are KDE specific.
