The directory is also created when running `startx', so I don't really
think it is a gdm problem.
I found this in the Debian Bug Database just now:
This is not the same problem, but it is the same directory and also
around the time I started having my problem, so they might be related.
I run woody, by the way. My X packages are
ii xserver-common 3.3.6-10 files and utilities common to all X servers
ii xserver-svga 3.3.6-10 X server for SVGA graphics cards
The system is fairly updated with all the newest packages.
