That all sounds pretty normal to me. Maybe you just have to change the session 
type when you login with kdm the first time. Normally kdm performs a login 
with your last session type which may in your case be GNOME. So you have just 
to choose KDE as session type once to login into KDE.

Besides this, it's normal to have mixed menus when you have both KDE and GNOME 
installed and it's also normal to have  limited logout options if your 
desktop environment and your session manager are different - that means if  
you use kdm with GNOME or gdm with KDE.
