Just to add to the above, I'm running:
kdm: 4:4.4.2-0ubuntu14
xserver-xorg: 1:7.5+5ubuntu1 (but Xorg.0.log shows: X.Org X Server 1.7.6)
uname -a shows:
Linux Beast 2.6.32-24-generic #38-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jul 5 09:20:59 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The sleep 1 workaround to /etc/init/kdm.conf didn't work the first time, without rebooting, making sure all X/kdm had stopped, "start kdm" didn't work and still had the same error (running via ssh).
However after a reboot it seems to be running again. I have done 5 reboots/shutdowns in a row and it's worked each time now, looks like the workaround worked here =)
