Nothing. It's just that KDM doesn't set the path right, so some programs 
can't be found. I couldn't find how to set the path in the kdmrc file, like I 
was able to do with GDM. Anyway, edit the startkde script so that all the 
programs it refers to include the full path. Like this:

# Link "tmp" resource to directory in /tmp
# Creates a directory /tmp/kde-$USER and links $KDEHOME/tmp-$HOSTNAME to it.
/usr/kde/bin/lnusertemp tmp >/dev/null

# Link "socket" resource to directory in /tmp
# Creates a directory /tmp/ksocket-$USER and links $KDEHOME/socket-$HOSTNAME 
to it.
/usr/kde/bin/lnusertemp socket >/dev/null

# the splashscreen and progress indicator

Your kde directory may be different than mine. Then you can add startkde to 
the xdm Xsession file.
