Yes, Login screen. Sorry - [senior|blonde|pmt] moment.

Others *have* reported similar things: successful solutions for others have
* deleting the $HOME/.kde4 directory (didn't work for me)
* deleting /etc/kde4rc (didn't work for me)
* adding various system variable definitions to startkde (none of which worked
None of these would really explain why the live CD won't start, except perhaps
if there's something odd about my hardware, but although my box is a custom
build I don't think there's anything unusual about it.
I have also installed KDE 4.04 from the backports. Needless to say, this
didn't work for me either!
At this rate, when Impudent Ibex (or whatever it's called) comes out, I shall
have to resort to the wretched GNOME. Aaaaargh!
