Yes, the stock Xorg server doesn't though. You could use VNC, but in my
experience that just opens up another X display where you login separately
using kdm/gdm/xdm or whatever.
I suggest you use KDE's desktop sharing (krfb, in the menu under "System",
part of the "kdenetwork" package, tested on 3.4.1). Does what you want.
