Starting with a fresh install of the latest tree, using "startx" I was able
to start up GNOME, use it for a while to work, then ran switchdesk, set it
to KDE, then logged out of X.  I then ran "startx" and KDE came up, I
worked in it for a while, then ran switchdesk and chose GNOME, then
logged out.  I repeated this procedure 2 more times over the period of
a few hours (while testing out other users reported bugs), and was unable
to reproduce the problem you describe here.

It's possible perhaps that the problem you experienced is fixed now, or
was just some weird beta release transient.

Closing bug as WORKSFORME
