Can you please stop your running xdm daemon ("invoke-rc.d xdm stop") and
mail this bug the output of the following command?:

# xdm -nodaemon -debug 1 > /tmp/xdm.debug 2>&1

(Use whatever filename you like instead of /tmp/xdm.debug.)

Also, do you mean that, given a user named "foobar":
1) a file named /home/foobar-n is created
2) a file named /home/foobar/x-n is created
3) a file named /home/foobar/foobar-n is created

Or something else entirely?
