Re-login on logout

I currently have an FC5 box setup to autologin to KDE, but using the gdm login manager. This works great but I am looking for a way to have the system automatically login again if a user were to try and logout, almost like a continuous loop. At some point I would possibly need a way to break the loop and login as root but for now I will take it one step at a time. I am not sure if I am overlooking something or not but any help would be appreciated.

Autologin is setup for GDM...and when I boot the computer it automatically logs into the profile I want...However if that profile then logs off it drops them to the gdm login screen. I would like it to loop back into the profile if someone tries to log off. Sorry if I didn't mention this previous.
