:>    xdm.
:>    Is anyone else seeing this problem?  Basically xdm stops working.
:>    You login to X and it just seg-faults and goes back to the console.
:Yes, I'm also seeing that.

    Sephe found similar bugs reported w/ linux and FreeBSD.  It's a bug
    in xdm but the easiest solution is to adjust the PAM config file for

    Comment out the 'session' line in /etc/pam.d/xdm and the problem
    should go away.

    I will change the defaults in the repo.
