I'm experincing this problem too on f20 (fully upgraded) with kde. The problem is far more severe for me however, many times the login screen simply doesn't work. I have to switch to another virtual terminal and use init 6 to restart the system and try again.

When I'm lucky and I can login to f20, the sddm-greeter window still appears in the taskbar. You can close it but there is another deadly problem: 

The /usr/bin/sddm is consuming 100% of CPU power and making my whole system sluggish. If I try to kill it, it log out of my system. This is obviously a serious bug in sddm and needs to be fixed as soon as possible. 

It's such a shame that we are approaching f20 release date yet this bug has got no attention whatsoever.

Comment 2 James Abtahi 2013-12-10 17:51:45 UTC
Just found out that this problem can be solved by switching to KDM. sddm is buggy and useless.

> Just found out that this problem can be solved by switching to KDM.

And that is what we did for the Fedora 20 release, which is why these SDDM bugs are not being treated as blockers.

Only users who installed a prerelease of Fedora 20 and upgraded to the final will be stuck with SDDM by default, they can switch to KDM manually. Both fresh installations of Fedora 20 and upgrades from earlier Fedora releases will default to KDM. (For upgrades, unless of course you switched to a different display manager before upgrading, then that one will be kept by the upgrade.)
