here's a strange one...
while waiting for the reply, i logged in as root and created a new user to see if i could
duplicate the same issue with just a terminal box in the bottom right corner. i restarted
and that user worked perfectly, kde desktop came up smoothly. so i logged out and went
back in as my original user and it worked perfectly as well. go figure. i know this
isn't a fix but it appears to working fine.
thanks for all your help, its been greatly appreciated.

It's not "kde" group but "KDE (K Desktop Environment)".
Yes, I don't like it :D And KDE is going through some changes, as it's not a
desktop now but KDE community with KDE workspace, applications, people...
Try to change session in GDM/KDM (the login screen). It's preferred way to
change it for user.
