Correct.  My next step was, if I leave the above lines in my 
autostart.sh, and Log Out, I tried to kill all running processes until I 
successfully logged out.

When I killed something called "dcopserver --nosid" (KDE's desktop 
communications server), I finally got back to my login screen.

This is KDE 3.5.9-5.fc7 Fedora, which might make a difference. I am 
happy to just comment out the above lines in autostart.sh, since I don't 
use any KDE applications.
