Bug#462997: gdm: SIGABRT on shutdown

Package: gdm
Version: 2.20.3-1
Severity: normal

I'm getting this in my log files when I shut down gdm.  Whether I do it manually or implicitly at system shutdown 
doesn't matter:

syslog.0:Jan 27 21:28:34 foo gdm[3206]: WARNING: huvuddemon: Fick SIGABRT. Någonting gick hemskt fel. Stannar! 

Translated into English (from Swedish) it's something like:

syslog.0:Jan 27 21:28:34 foo gdm[3206]: WARNING: main daemon: Got SIGABRT. Something went awfully wrong. Stopping!

I haven't been able to find anything else as a clue to what might have gone wrong.  Haven't noticed anything not 
working either.

  Regards //Johan
