Jeff,

`ps -A | grep dm` doesn't show anything (well, sendmail :) ).

I tried to follow this through: inittab starts a script called 'prefdm'
which appears to identify the correct dm and start it with the -nodaemon
switch.  I understand this suppresses kdm from running in the background?

This is at the edge of my depth.

Is this setup relevant to the problem and how do I change it?

Again ,thanks.
