Public bug reported:

Hi,

I updated Dapper with the mew packages available for at 16 Jun 2006 (or
possibly 15th), and now gdm won't let me in, saying that my password is
incorrect.

If I do an Alt+Ctrl+F1 and enter the same username and password in
terminal mode, it works fine. I can "/etc/init.d/gdm stop" and "startx"
from there, and then everything seems normal.

Is anything borked with gnome-related updates of the aforementioned
date?

my version is:

gdm - 2.14.7-0ubuntu
libgnome2-0 - 2.14.1-0ubuntu

If now I try to run 
System->Administration->Login Window
or
System->Preferences->Sessions
or
System->Administration->Update Manager

nothing shows up.

Any other info that I can provide?
