I tried deleting the [Desktop0] line to no avail. Also, this still works
at my job where I have, again, and XP box and a Linux box running
Mandrake 9.1. In comparing the kdmrc files I see that the first line is
[Desktop0] both at home and at work. Don't understand why it works at
work and complains at home.

Actually I found that what get's run is mdkkdm and have killed it and
restarted it, again, to no avail.

I've even downloaded my working kdmrc file from work to no avail. I
don't think I tried rebooting yet. Note that the differences between my
home kdmrc and my work kdmrc seems to be minor and trivial - thinks like
users shown on the login screen and who can reboot.
The README states:
The configuration files in this directory were automatically generated.
As the used algorithms are pretty dumb, the configuration may be broken.
This configuration consists of the following files:
This configuration was derived from the following files:
Have a look at the program <kdebase-sources>/kdm/kfrontend/genkdmconf
if you want to generate another configuration.
Kinda odd that /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc is generated from the same
file! Also I don't have <kdebase-sources> with which to generate another
