Yes!  You are definitely on to something!  I have it working now.  Here 
were the steps:

- Log in as myself from the KDM dialog.  Selection not operational.

- Create another user named 'guest'.

- Log out to KDM

- Log in as 'guest'.  Selection not operational.

- Lock 'guest's session, select switch session from the dialog and start a 
new session under my own id.

- Lo and behold: Selection is now operational in my session!  This 
persists even after I switched back to guest and logged that user out.

This has got to be one for the books.  What is the fundamental difference 
between a session started from KDM and one initiated from user switch?
