I performed an upgrade from Hoary to Breezy today. 

After I fixed an issue with the xorg keyboard driver (that was appearantly
renamed from "keyboard" to "kbd") gdm started and accepted my username. But on
the first character of the password gdm crashed and restarted.

I found out that the following directory didn't have the fonts.dir file:


After I generated one with mkfontdir gdm behaved as expected.
