In /usr/share/gdm/defaults.conf you have the following:

# Launch the greeter with an additional list of colon separated GTK+ modules.
# This is useful for enabling additional feature support e.g. GNOME
# accessibility framework. Only "trusted" modules should be allowed to minimize
# security holes
# By default, these are the accessibility modules.

As you can see, AddGtkModules is set to false by default.

Now, edit your /etc/gdm/gdm.conf and put the following in the [daemon] section:


I *think* all you actually need for this is keymouselistener, so you
can probably remove the dwellmouselistener module from the example above.
