Are you not using the bootscripts?

Once you start kdm, you shouldn't need any of the extra stuff. It
should start X and and then the proper KDE session. I think you might
be having problems because you're starting multiple copies of the
desktop session executables: kwin, kdesktop, etc.

Just run kdm from a bootscript. It should start a login manager. When
you login, it should start a default KDE session for you. Look at the
gdm bootscript setup in blfs-bootscripts. kdm should work basically
the same.
