Description of problem:
It is not possible to login into kdm again after logging out from kde.
Kdm doesn't accept any keystrokes, while interaction by the mouse is still possible.
Workaround: After restarting X server, I can log in again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into KDE 
2. Log out from KDE
3. Try to login again

Actual Results:
Kdm didn't accept any keystrokes, so I can't enter my password.

Expected Results:
Kdm should accept input from keyboard.

I've seen this on occasion too, but only after I suspend->resume my laptop. 
Methinks there's an X bugosity going on here.

Session->Restart X server is a quick-n-dirty workaround.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-04-20 12:20:04 EDT
This almost certainly isn't kdm at fault here.  At least for me, even
CNTL-ALT-BACKSPACE doesn't work.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-04-23 15:08:09 EDT
Looking /var/log/kdm.log I see something suspicious:
<stdin>:30:1: error: unterminated #if
no idea if that's bad or where it's coming from though.
Comment 4 Mary Ellen Foster 2008-04-24 07:54:33 EDT
Unfortunately, I see that same line in my kdm.log on Fedora 8. :(
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-05-01 10:03:50 EDT
Including in kdmrc:
(in kde-settings-4.0-22) , until proper fix for bug #443320 comes.
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-05-01 10:17:52 EDT
fixed build available, please test:

Comment 8 Will Woods 2008-05-05 11:26:24 EDT
Works just fine in my testing.
Comment 9 John Summerfield 2008-05-11 23:42:31 EDT
I'm thinking the timing of this is bad:
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
(II) ImExPS/2 Generic Explorer Mouse: Close
(II) UnloadModule: "evdev"
