If you go to KDE's control centre and expand "KDE Components", click "Session Manager" and you'll find the option there.

To be honest, I'm not sure. After doing startx, you should be able to switch to another terminal with Ctrl+Alt+Fn (where n = 1, 2, ... 6). Log in and then run "ps aux | grep kvdr" (assuming "kvdr" is what the executable is). Take note of the number in the second column, that's the process ID. You can then kill said process with "kill x", where x is the process ID. That'll hopefully get rid of kvdr.

No prob, you'll still want to do the stuff in Contol Centre, though, obviously!
