Pardon me for asking such a simple question, but did you
remember to switch to xdm-shadow?
This is what I did:
__> cd /usr/X11R6/bin/
__> mv xdm xdm.old
__> ln xdm-shadow xdm
__> ll /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm*
82 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 82372 Jan 13 21:11 /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm
82 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 82372 Jan 13 21:11 /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm-shadow
82 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 82148 Jan 13 21:11 /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm.old
and xdm and shadow lived happily ever after ...
EARTH: Mostly harmless.
