You've likely got kdm running as your login manager instead of gdm now, and 
you're making gdm-specific changes, thus no effect. 
Edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop and change the value for DISPLAYMANAGER in there 
from kde to gnome, or open up the KDE Control Center and navigate to System 
Administration -> Login Manager and you should be able to figure out the kdm 

I don't think the other things are related to the first. Some people report 
that you have to split up the xset stuff I suggest in rc.local to get it to 
work (but it works fine for me as is, haven't tried anything else yet). Maybe 
something in there is causing a hang that makes it seem like nothing else in 
rc.local is getting executed, I dunno. Should work... Try two lines:

/usr/X11R6/bin/xset s off
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset -dpms
