Breezy fresh install.
When i log in, gdm opens a popup saying that it can't start my session and will
start a failsafe xterm.
In this xterm i launch gnome-session and GNOME seems to work good.

I have this problem with my home backuped user and with a fresh user.

/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: could not find the sessreg utility, cannot update
wtmp and utmp
/etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
/etc/gdm/Xsession: Executing /usr/bin/gnome-session failed, will try to run
