Maybe I misunderstand the issue, but I thought the OP said that this 
feature was controlled by a keyword in kdmrc.  I assumed that that meant 
it was a feature supplied as part of KDM.  Are you saying that it was a 
MDV/MGA extension to start with, and that it was withdrawn because we no 
longer wanted to support it ?

If so, that throws a whole new light on the issue.  I thought it was a 
case of some recent change to forcibly disable the feature even though 
the upstream code supported it.
