Since no one seems to be using gdm, i have to answer this post to
I have downloaded gdm2.6 and install it in /usr/local/. After I set it
up (using gdm-setup), I can login/logout and never see the problem
mentioned previously. So, it's definitely a gdm2.4 thing.
I'll try to make a package for it and I'll post it here if anybody is
(unless there is a gdm2.6 package somewhere and I don't know about it).
