What's being proposed seems like a good change for going forward (as I 
said, screen-scraping in that way is an accident waiting to happen).  It 
doesn't fix all the deployed code that's out there now.

The right solution has to be to add the words "Managing Your Account" 
somewhere on the login screen - as an HTML comment if need be.

Can someone tell me whom I should send this message to?  I don't know if 
the KDE bugzilla folks read this list.
