kdm has 2 modus, standard mode and theme mode. The Login Manager setting tool allows the user only to configure the standard mode. In rhel5 we have the theme mode as default, it's why the user doesn't see the greeting strings shown in the login window. 

The user has to switch from theme mode to standard mode in order to get it work.

It's a setting problem, not a bug
