Usually I run gdmflexiserver from current gnome session's menu as
Applications -> System tools -> New login
which should let "Log in as another user without logging out".
So expected behavior is to get gdm login window and let another user to log in in parallel to existing gnome session.
That worked OK until recently.
Now instead of giving gdm login window gdmflexiserver simply hangs up.
I provided its debug output in the previous message.

No, keyboard works fine.

No, computer does not freeze. I kill gdmflexiserver process with no problem.
