what exactly do you mean by "KDE interface"? The user manager (kuser) or the 
graphical login (kdm)?
If the latter, you can configure which users it shows (either include only 
specified ones or exclude specified ones), see Control Center->System 
Administration->Login Manager->Users. You might also file a wishlist for kdm 
to exclude users by regexp (.*\$ for samba machine accounts) at 
If it's kuser, IMHO it's okay to have them there, otherwise file a wishlist 
item for it (also bugs.kde.org).In any case you won't get the feature too 
early though since KDE is already feature-frozen for the upcoming 3.1 release 
As an alternative, if you know C++ you could implement such a feature yourself 
and submit a patch to kde-devel at kde.org, you could then use it right now...
