Try configuring the kioskgreeter for GDM in your gdm configuration. See 
the ISSUES section in the kiosk(8) man page.
(man -M /opt/SUNWkio/man kiosk)

BTW: instead of restarting gdm, as stated in the man page, you should be 
able to use
    gdmflexiserver --command="UPDATE_CONFIG daemon/Greeter"
to notify gdm of this configuration change.
