Why do upgrades to KDM/KDE not preserve changes to configuration files?view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – The kdebase-workspace package on Arch Linux only preservers changes made to /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc when the package is updated. I need to edit /usr/share/config/kdm/Xsetup to get my monitors to rotate correctly, but the changes get lost every time kdebase-workspace gets updated. The Arch Wiki recommends copying /usr/share/config/kdm/Xsession to /usr/share/config/kdm/Xsession.custom. (HowTos)
