So you mean that whenever I use Gnome I'm running with root permissions? That's not possible, I cannot think about a worst security problem than this.Another: gdm is a startup script, so it's running as root. And it starts gnome, so that is too. So when you log out, you're talking to root??
Anyway, why when I use KDE it doesn't happen? GDM starts KDE too, so it should be the same.
