Subject: Can't input anything to gdm
Package: gdm
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***
  After upgrade some packages, I found I cannot input anything into gdm
  today. That is, the input box of gdm can't get anything I typed with
  keyboard. So I have to `startx' to lauch the X window sytem.

  I don't know how to get more detailed information to help diagnosing
  this problem.

  Thank you.
