Hello, I believe I have solved this bug. (Using Archlinux but it should
of course be applicable to any distro).

I have edited my /usr/bin/startkde and I believe that accordingly one
should patch startkde.cmake in the kde-workspace source tarball.

You have to comment lines 32, 33, 34 ie:

if test -z "$XDM_MANAGED" || echo "$XDM_MANAGED" | grep ",auto" > /dev/null; then
  xsetroot -solid "#000000"

Also attaching a patch to kde-workspace-4.7.0.

I do not believe this has any implications however maybe some corner
case could need it, so I do not know if the patch is "upstream-able". :)

** Patch added: "kdm-plymouth-autologin.patch"
