KDE Leave menu doesn't appear

Recently we have had to stop our desktop system, which is usually running openSUSE with KDE, using the hard power off, i.e. pressing and holding the power button down for several seconds. The problem, was that if we right clicked on the desktop and choose "Leave" from the pop-up menu, then nothing happened. Finally, we got tired of this and did some googling.

The solution was rather simple. Start "Configure Desktop", and go to "Startup and Shutdown", and in "Session Management" choose "Start with an empty session". Then after a Ctrl+Alt+Backspace we could login again, and now the Leave menu appears.
