Yeah, that's what I did. I hacked /etc/init.d/[xw]dm so that it reckons
the no-start-[xw]dm option again. The real question is why the hell this
option was removed in the first place? Is there any other way to do this?

That's two of us, because I use wdm too ;-). The question I made has to do
with both xdm _and_ wdm, I mentioned xdm because it's the common place,
wdm config files are alike.
