Bug#302460: gdm: this is a regression in squeeze/sid from lenny

Package: gdm
Version: 2.20.10-1
Severity: normal

So it's weird: I'm way farther away in time, but I see the same
phenomenon. Starting gdm would get me to the prompt in a few seconds
once X was started, back when I was in Lenny.

The odd thing is lenny also has gdm 2.20. So maybe the issue is lying
somewhere else in the stack?
