gdmflexiserver should launch another server login. I just tried this to 
see if it still worked. I could launch a KDE server account as well as 
my present gnome account.
Permission issues remain on which console user should own which devices. 
If you wat to run different desktops, it works for me. No sound in KDE 
though, The Gnome user account owns the sound.
