Hmm... I'm puzzling over bugs 22877 and 22878.
First, that xdm leaves the socket open is a bug, but it isn't a
release-critical bug. Applications that don't know about the socket
(that is, everthing but xbase) will, in general, ignore it entirely.
Second, that xbase has the socket open is a security bug, simply because
it's an undocumented service (XDMCP is documented as using UDP port 177,
so it can't be that).
Third, I don't understand bug report 22877 at all, there doesn't even
seem to be a reported problem, it's just random information.
Fourth, I was going to pull down a copy of the source from
ftp.debian.org, (to a solaris machine that has plenty of free disk space
and is generally being unused), but.. it downloaded without errors, it
uncompressed without errors, but when I tried to untar it, tar died
before it got to the xdm sources complaining of "directory checksum
