Bug#167642: xdm: missing colon in xdm-config

Package: xdm
Version: 4.2.1-3
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The following line in etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config is missing a colon:

  DisplayManager.authDir		/var/lib/xdm

I do not know what the effect of the missing colon is; I have not tried to
start xdm without it.  But the syntax for declaring X resources in the X(7x)
man page requires the colon:

    The precise syntax for resources is:

	   ResourceSpec      =3D WhiteSpace ResourceName WhiteSpace ":" WhiteSpace=
