Bug#265920: kdm 3.3 is deleting /var/run/xdmctl (causes problem under selinux)

Package: kdm
Severity: normal

the directory is being deleted and recreated.

whilst this makes it nice and easy for dealing with sockets in it,
it makes for an impossible situation for selinux.

the issue is that kdm will have to be given both unlink and write access
to /var/run, in order for /var/run/xdmctl to be deleted and recreated.

neither of these things are desirable.

this behaviour was not present in kdm 3.2.X.
