All kidding aside, this seems to be a real security issue. Your system
shouldn't be showing unauthorized users what you were doing. It should
properly flush the memory.

Seems like an easy fix would be to write a routine into KDM to write 4-5 seconds worth of something benign (like the KDE logo in different spots) to the screen before logout/shutdown (note how 2000/XP already do this with the 'preparing to shutdown' screen? Maybe there's a reason for that).
