There's no better way to do it, but is the data loss small enough that it's not a bug if a package does it? I know a lot of people re-order xdm to run earlier in boot. If I were the xdm maintainer, I'd fear the storm of bugs if I did this and lost their settings. The alternative would be changing the default for new installs, but leaving existing installs as-is. -- see shy jo  Really it probably makes sense to explicitly stop xdm during shutdown anyway, since that more cleanly shuts down X.
