I have a solution but a little hacky :

start a normal session, say in KDE (your /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc point to xinitrc.kde)

then go to a linux console (press ctr-alt-F1 for example)
As root do :
rm /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
ln -s /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.fluxbox /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

Then login a fluxbox session as the user like you want by just :
startx -- :1

After that :
to go to kde session, press ctr-alt-F7
to go to fluxbox session, press ctr-alt-F8
