xdm in 4.2.0-0pre1v1
I don't know if it's just me that has messed up my configuration or a
real problem. But after I updated to X 4.2 the installation of xdm
looks like the default one with the XFree86 logo and logging in just
bounces me back to the same login screen.

Description: X display manager
xdm manages a collection of X servers, which may be on the local host or
remote machines. It provides services similar to those provided by init,
getty, and login on character-based terminals: prompting for login name and
password, authenticating the user, and running a session. xdm supports XDMCP
(X Display Manager Control Protocol) and can also be used to run a chooser
process which presents the user with a menu of possible hosts that offer
XDMCP display management.
If the xutils package is installed, xdm can use the sessreg utility to
register login sessions to the system utmp file; this, however, is not
necessary for xdm to function.
