Great!  Is there any specific section of the kdmrc it needs to be in?
I'll try just putting it in [General], and if it doesn't work I'll move it 
further down :-) (BTW I will use /sbin/poweroff, I guess it is the same?)

BTW, the KDE Help Center ("Settings-Modules" -> "System Administration" -> 
"Login Mananger") still refers to the option to change it in the GUI:
Use these 3 blanks to define the exact shutdown command.
The shutdown command defaults to:"...

I noticed the same on a Debian box (unstable just went to KDE 3.2 a few days 
ago) - so at the very least the Docs and actual control panel to which the 
docs refer to are out of sync.  I guess I could file a bug with the KDE tam 
as well.

I will send-pr it then, just so it doesn't get lost (as the docs keep 
telling me! :-)
