 No, it hasn't - and adding it doesn't seem to be the right thing to do either; 
 kdm then complains about an unrecognized key.
 However, there *is* a ServerTTY setting (in a different section):
 # The TTY line (without /dev/) the X-server covers physically.
 # Default is ""
 I tried setting that to ttyE4 - since that is where my X server is supposed to 
 sit - but that didn't help.
