Is the X server not killed when you log out using the KDE menu?

You could also try tro press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, that should also kill the X server.

X server may be being respawned by init. Change to runlevel 3: Ctrl-Alt_F6 (to get a console) then become root and type "telinit 3", or if configured you might try "sudo telinit 3"

If he has to start it using "startx", why should init respawn it?

Oh I missed that.
After Ctr-Alt-F6, "pkill X" should do it. Ctl-Alt-Backspace may do it from X - if you get login screen after logout of KDE
