	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 ...
