/etc/X11/prefdm never start kdm or xdm

Description of problem:
if [ -f /etc/sysconfig/desktop ]; then
if [ "$DISPLAYMANAGER" = GNOME ]; then
elif [ "$DISPLAYMANAGER" = KDE ]; then
elif [ "$DISPLAYMANAGER" = XDM ]; then
looks for the $DISPLAYMANAGER variable but in the
/etc/sysconfig/desktop the variable is called DESKTOP.
DISPLAYMANAGER is not defined in other places (I think ...) so the
condition will allways be false.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.define in /etc/sysconfig/desktop DESKTOP="KDE"
Actual Results: when graphic mode go on gdm started, no kdm.
Expected Results: kdm running
if I define in /etc/sysconfig/desktop DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE" kdm start
The code is in the /etc/X11/prefdm file, sorry ...
This was intentional.
