In the latest kdebase-workspace in the kde-unstable repo, the default KDM config specifies that the greeter should run as a separate "kdm" user, and since this doesn't usually exists, KDM seems to fail to launch.

Solution is to either create that user on installation, comment out the line, or set some other funny user to run it as.
