Public bug report changed:

Task: ubuntu gdm
       Assignee: (unassigned) => Ubuntu Desktop Bugs
         Status: Unconfirmed => Fix Released

This upload fixes the issue:

 gdm ( dapper; urgency=low
   * New upstream version:
     - Because the main gdm.conf file is now read-only, contains distro
       defaults and is not to be edited by the user, the file has been
       moved to ${datadir}/gdm/defaults.conf (also factory-gdm.conf is
       now %{datadir}/gdm/factory-defaults.conf).
     - Lots of performance issues with the GDM sockets connection improved.
       Now the code deals much better with failures, and better debug is
       printed to the log.
     - Fix gdmdynamic so it supports up to hundreds of displays rather than
       just a dozen or so.
     - gdm-restart, gdm-safe-restart, gdm-stop, and gdm.spec now use
       gdmflexiserver to get config data rather than trying to grep and
       awk the config file directly.
     - Fix Xsession script so zenity calls work.
     - Lots of improvements to the GDM docs.
     - fix language and session menu options (Ubuntu: #31125)
     - fix gdmflexiserver to run without using gtk when using --command
       (Ubuntu: #27913)
   * debian/init:
     - allow cdd to use an alternative config, patch by Oliver Grawert
       (Ubuntu :#29404)
   * debian/patches/01_xconfigoptions.patch:
     - updated
   * debian/patches/11_powermanagement.patch:
     - updated
   * debian/rules:
     - use --with-defaults-conf to put the configuration file to /etc
