Ubuntu KDE woes

KDE in Ubuntu is not ready for prime time:
  1. kdm has screwed up my system fonts. Even if I revert back to gdm/Gnome, they refuse to change from the defaults to Bitstream Vera, thought the font applet indicates that these are the current values.

  2. The screen resolution reverts to 1024 x 768 even if I set it to 800 x 600. I had this problem during installation as well, but I had to reset the resolution only once then; the system learned this setting on the second go.

  3. The screen does not always get rendered properly and gets pulled to all the corners of the display. This usually happens during startup.
Going to give KDE a wide berth once I get rid of these problems and get Gnome working properly again.
