Hi Jes,

The installer gives you an option to log the first user in automatically on 
boot. This option is turned on by default. Looks like you either missed this 
option, or forgot to deselect it.

You can reverse this behavior with the 'Login Manager'. This tool can be 
accessed here:

KMenu -> Settings -> System Administration -> Login Manager

On the 'Users' tab of this tool, deselect the 'Enable Auto-Login' tickbox.
