Well, it's a feature (having window-manager specific session types versus your 
own customized session, read .xsession). I agree however it's not quite clear 
that 'Custom' means 'execute xsesssion'. Perhaps you'd want to file a wish at 
bugs.kde.org to include some tooltips into kdm or to rename the 'Custom' 
sessiont type to xsession or whatever.

FWIW, you don't have to select it over and over at each login - the default 
preselected session type is always the one selected at the last login (except 
for the very first run, where it defaults to the KDE session-type).
