Not sure if this will help. I use the following script that's very similar:
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 'nofiles' -c
'Machine Account' -s /bin/false '%u'
I have a group named "nofiles" and the addition of "-g 'nofiles'" puts
all machines in their own group so their gid is different than that
that the users are in.
If KDE gets possible user login accounts from a particular gid this may help.
