The TTY manager for gdm doesn’t work on kFreeBSD, so I’m not surprised.

We tried to take kFreeBSD into account when porting the TTY manager to
gdm3, so I’d appreciate if you could test this package instead - this is
the default for squeeze installations now. We are not going to introduce
many things in gdm 2.20 from now.
