Bug#594176: wdm doesn't look at /etc/security/limits.d/ (found solution)

Package: wdm
Version: 1.28-4
Severity: important

Good day!
I've noticed that sessions started by wdm aren't affected by the configuration files in /etc/security/limits.d/, so i quickly installed xdm and checked how the files /etc/pam.d/wdm and /etc/pam.d/xdm differ.
After comparing them I've found that /etc/pam.d/xdm has an extra line:

session	required	pam_limits.so

After adding this line to my /etc/pam.d/wdm the problem was fixed.
There is also a line

@include common-password

which is in /etc/pam.d/xdm, but not in /etc/pam.d/wdm, but i don't know if it makes any difference.
Good luck and have a nice day!
