IMHO, it ideally should (just like in Windows?), however KDM and the user 
settings are not synced by default.

In System Settings -> Advanced tab -> Login Manager -> Users tab, there is a 
section of the window labeled "User Image Source". Pressing Shift+F1 (What's 
This) and clicking on that area explains the choices. Basically, KDM is set 
to use Admin by default, meaning what image the admin chooses for the user in 
the login screen only.

Perhaps we could set it to "User, admin" by default?

Not sure what to do with the echo mode, though...
