lxdm fails on logout in OpenSUSE 12.2

I am running OpenSUSE 12.1 with the LXDE pattern installed.
I really like the lxdm window manager, and am trying to use the lxdm display manager.
I have set lxdm as the default windowmanager in /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager
When I inti 5 everything starts fine - lxdm greeter screen, I can log in, and I get an lxde session

when I choose logout, the lxsession-logout executable runs and the session ends.
However the displaymanager does not restart and I am back without an X session :’(

/var/log/lxdm.log ends with:

The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Warning: Compat map for group 2 redefined
> Using new definition
> Warning: Compat map for group 3 redefined
> Using new definition

Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server

The way I see it is that I’ve either got a permissions problem somewhere, or that lxdm is not configured to reload properly.

/usr/lib/X11/displaymanagers/lxdm is below.
By my reading this should run xdm_reload_files - where is that procedure?

lxdm_start_proc() {
return $?

lxdm_vars() {
case $1 in
return 1
return 0

I Anser part of my question xdm_reload_files is in /etc/init.d/xdm

for what its worth /var/log/messages contains:

Is this a problem with console-kit being unable to remove that directory, or is the killproc being issued incorrectly in some script or other?

Bump. Nobody got any ideas?
