kde authorisation problems


Hello. Sorry for the cryptic subject, but I can't describe it better. This is my problem.
I seem to have some difficulty identifying my self in kde. For example, if in kde I select "lock screen" from the menu, and after that I want to log in again, it asks for my password. I fill in the password, but then it say's the password is incorrect. (yes it is the right password and no, I didn't make any typo's )
A more serious problem is that I can't use kdm to log in. Every time I try to log in, I get a message that a critical error has happened, and that I should look at the kdm log file for more info. But there seems nothing wrong when I look at /var/log/kdm.log. The is a section of that log file:

XFree86 Version 4.3.0
Release Date: 27 February 2003
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.6
Build Operating System: Linux 2.4.20 i686 [ELF]
Build Date: 20 April 2003
Before reporting problems, check http://www.XFree86.Org/
to make sure that you have the latest version.
Module Loader present
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
(++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(==) Log file: "/var/log/XFree86.0.log", Time: Tue Jun 17 17:03:28 2003
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config-4"
(II) [GLX]: Initializing GLX extension

I can't log in as any user, root or regular, to any wm. I can however use xdm, although I haven't figured out how to start-up any thing else that the standard twm window manager.
This problem has been there for quite a while now, ever since I installed my LFS system. But I didn't get around to fix it. Now I have some more time, I decided to tackle the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, but what has that got to do with it?
