I went ahead and renamed my home directory and then was able to successfully 
log into KDE as myself.  The AD login created a home directory in my name and 
everything worked fine -- until I logged out again.

Seems the art that owns the AD login is user 14823 and the art that is a 
console login is user 1000.  Possibly, my AD/winbind/pam settings are 
creating a different user number for each time I log in.
