Looking at LXDM.orgs wiki it shows:
"If you want to have a choice between starting in LXDE or other options (including simply Openbox) then it's important not to use LXDM versions earlier than 0.3.0, as they have a bug which interferes with sessions other than LXDE. The bug was worked around by adding support for .dmrc in LXDM 0.3.0."
make sure your using the most recent version of lxdm
