Changing KDM (KDE display manager) settings, by using the KDE Control Center) do not apply, even they are shown in the dialogues.

A search for kdmrc revealed that there are two kdmrc files:
[1] /usr/pkg/etc/kdm/kdmrc
[2] /usr/pkg/share/kde/config/kdm/kdmrc
Change some KDM settings by using the Control Center (System Administration -> Login Manager) After changing some values (widget theme,   shown users etc.) those settings should never apply to the login dialog, even when X gets restarted.
Backup and delete /usr/pkg/share/kde/config/kdm/kdmrc and create an symlink to /usr/pkg/etc/kdm/kdmrc in it's directory.
