Disabling the screen locking when switching between users

I've just installed KDE 4.1, and have a question about configuring the "switch user" functionality.

I have been looking for a way to disable the screen locking when switching between users. This is on my home computer, and it's a bit annoying that the screen gets locked when switching between two locally logged on users. I understand that locking is important in corporate environments, but it feels a bit unnecessary at home - especially as I have configured the login manager to log in without passwords.

If I switch with Ctrl-Alt-F7 and F9, it works as I want it to, but it would be nice to have the screen locking disabled when switching via the menu as well.
