Just to clarify....
to recover from the situation I did something like
dpkg -l |grep gnome
and deleted all of the gnome packages
I didn't have to reinstall or reconfigure KDE to get it back
I did reinstall kdm but I'm not sure that was really necessary
once I did this all the users KDE desktops came back again
it seemed to me that KDE was sort of "hidden" behind all of the gnome stuff
I understand that this probably isn't unique to rhythmbox but it's the
only thing I've tried
