Encrypted $HOME using EncFS, libpam-encfs and KDM

I would like to encrypt my home directory with EncFS, but have run into a
bit of a problem. KDE works just fine with an encrypted $HOME when started
via 'startx' and when the following is added to .bashrc:
However, when KDE is started from KDM, rather than the command line, the
following error pops up:
There was an error setting up inter-process communications for KDE. The
returned by the system was:
Could not read network connection list.
Please check that the "dcopserver" program is running!
I've confirmed that EncFS is able to mount the encrypted directory prior to
the error appearing. /var/log/syslog has the following error:
kdm_greet: Can't open default user face
kdm_greet: Internal error: memory corruption detected
kdm: :1: Can't update authorization file in home dir /home/test
Can anyone shed any light on this?
