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.
