Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: gdm
When logging out (quitting), the gdm themed greeter appears properly,
however, when using ctrl+alt+backspace to restart gdm, an error appears
along the lines of "The greeter application appears to be crashing."
Hitting ok then takes me to the non-themed greeter which works just
1) Logout out into themed gdm greeter.
2) Ctrl+alt+backspace to restart gdm.
Others have been having similar problems on the ubuntu forums. A few
threads of significance:
Some speculate it is a problem with the latest version of libgtk2,
however, I was unable to test the previous version as it no longer
exists on archive.ubuntu.com.
** Affects: gdm (Ubuntu)
