shutdown problem 11.2, 32Bit, KDM, KDE 4.3

Hello,
A special behavior has occurred on my desktop pc whenever I (or any other user) wants to shutdown the pc from KDE. The shutdown procedeure drops me to a login prompt in the console.

var/log/messages tells:

Dec 4 21:57:36 desktop su: pam_env(su:setcred): non-alphanumeric key ‘alias aumix=padsp aumix’ in /etc/environment’, ignoring
