On my Debian I THINK its /etc/init.d/kdm - That says "K Desktop Manager". Otherwise I don't see anything labeled KDE and I don't use it. This script is to run the kdm daemon but there is no man page for that to confirm it is KDE but I don't know of any other "K Desktop Manager".

I also have a gdm for gnome.

Of course in /etc/rc?.d there are symbolic links to whats in /etc/init.d so that it starts at a given run level.

You might look for "startx" or "xinit" in /etc/init.d/* to see if anything else is trying to start X windows.
