Public bug reported:

Affects: kdebase kdm (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

After restarting X with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, KDM does not start KDE.
After successful login the screen goes black and KDM returns. (It
appears as if X server is restarted.)

I fail to find anything relevant in KDM or Xorg logs. Right now I have
resorted to using gdm (it manages to start KDE fine). This is the second
machine I've encountered this on. First one was a HP ze5612ea laptop and
I didn't report it because I assumed I just messed something up bad. Now
I hit it with my AMD64.

I guess forced restart of X left back something KDM can't handle. Any
suggestions on what it might be are welcome. Anyway, I think this
shouldn't happen in any case.
