I use lots of versions of Ubuntu.  The version that was in use that day was probably a subset of Dapper circa 2006-01-22.  The version of gdm was probably (I'm infering this was the related bug report https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/gdm/+bug/29389).

The message that I got was from dpkg informing me that it was unable to uninstall the package due to an error.  The error was that /etc/init.d/gdm stop returned non-zero.

Moving /etc/init.d/gdm away is different than having /etc/init.d/gdm return non-zero.  The former works, the latter doesn't.

Does this make sense?
