Yes, just over a week ago following an apt-get upgrade (and I wasn't too
happy about it).  Look back for the threads "Adding Xfce4 to the GDM
sessions menu" and "Sessions disappeared in the GDM menu" starting on
2004-04-10.  (If you can't find those, post again and I'll summarize
what I did.)

My GDM has also beeped every time since then.  I think it's a feature --
but I'd appreciate if anyone could confirm or deny this.
