Public bug reported:

I installed

apt-cache policy kpersonalizer
  Geïnstalleerd: 4:3.5.4-0ubuntu1~dapper2
  Kandidaat: 4:3.5.4-0ubuntu1~dapper2
 *** 4:3.5.4-0ubuntu1~dapper2 0

So i look into the tool and feel i don't want to use it, i quit it and continue.
Now i reboot and bang, there the Kpersonaliser popup before the desktop is actually launched. So i think "ok, i'll do cancel and this popup is probably only once". But nope,  every time i have to cancel it.

I keep on the habbit of canceling the bloody tool, and try to lower the
screenresolution in system setting. This didn't work anymore seeing that
the preview before the deside dialog was not working at all. (it did
before the Kpersonaliser installation)

So i think, "ok, maybe i have to reboot because of an update i just
did... so i reboot and bang, the black screen with no login at all.  So
i do dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and reboot again into my desktop
without issues.

After that i had another time the annoying popup of Kpersonalizer
(*@#$%!@#^), and i deside to follow the Kpersonalizer wizard now so
maybe it would shut it. After doing so, previewing altered resolutions
do work again,  but i still have to watch the Kpersonalizer popups at

This is a relative new dapper 6.06.1 with kde 3.5.4, and i have not
played with xorg.conf by hand.
