How to auto login after logout on SuSE 9.3

I use a Linux PC for single program purpose. 1 user + autologin + autostart.
I used to run RH9, but just changed to SuSE 9.3. Everything seems to work OK at boot, but if I logout I get to the login screen. I want it to auto login after logout...
Previously I used "autologin-1.0.0-1.i386.rpm" on RH 7.2 and 9. This worked as described. Now I use the built-in auto login feature of SuSE.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to solve this ?

What I don't understand: Why do you want the same user to login automatically after you just logged-out? This is probably the reason why it doesn't work the way you want it: there is simply no good reason to do this

Have a look in KDE Control Center -> System Administration -> Login Manager -> Convenience. There is an option for automatic login after the X-server has crashed. Maybe this will give you the option to login/out with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace.

Hold on.
There are always users with different needs than yourself...

This is a PC whith only one purpose: It will run a program that starts at login, and the users should not need to know the passwd (or to press the login-button for that matter...)
If someone should happen to logout, I want the box to automatically login again, and to start the program... All I want the users to see is the program's interface...

I will propably install the autologin rpm if there is no way to make the built-in autologin to behave as I want it.
