KDM seems not read kdmrc

Hi forum,

I have a question about kdm. It seemed that kdm did not read kdmrc at all.
Right now my kdm uses "Welcome to %h" as greet string, which was specified as a "welcome-label" in the theme. However in my kdmrc (/usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc), the greet string (GreetString entry in the group [X-*-Greeter]) is "Welcome to %n".
I tried to change this entry using Administrator mode in the KDE control center, but in vain.

My kdmrc is version 2.3, which is regenerated by `genkdmconf`, then modified through KDE control center.

Could anybody please tell me what file should kdm read, and if this question is actually a bug?

Thanks for your reply.
