Just a guess, but did you add KDE to a Gnome setup? You may have to go into Gnome and do the change too. When I had both installed, for auto-login I had to set it up both in KDE and Gnome since 'gdmsetup' was the controlling factor.

Bob's point still might be valid. I cant swear to it but I believe the "KDE only" install still uses GDM too. Just for the heck of it, try running "gdmsetup" from the terminal.

edit: make sure you su to root first :)

Yeah, I tried it in KDE live in vmware. Guess I was wrong. I do not have a KDE hard drive install setup anywhere so I am at a loss. My only possible suggestion is to install yumex (yum install yumex) and see what gdm or other gnome components (if any) are installed. It would seem you have a conflict going on somewhere. Maybe someone with some KDE knowledge will come along and help you out.
