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.
