OK, elm is broken.  Nevertheless, PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE TO CC ME.
Sending to only the list is fine.  I read the list.  It's generally
considered rude here to cc people with a second copy unless they
request them.  It's especially rude to continue to do it after
they've asked you to stop, and even more so if the recipient is
someone who's taking time to try to be helpful.

With that out of the way . . .

Given that you snipped the rest of the message I sent, I'm a little
worried that you thought I'd top-posted, and thought that what you
quoted was all I added.  There was a bunch of stuff further below,
indicating what I think is up with your gdm installation and what I
think is up with KDE.  You may have seen it and trimmed it; but due
to paranoia, I'm just making sure you caught it.
