The dapper and edgy gdm packages ship that file, did you install gdm
from somewhere else? You might want to reinstall it

Right, that happens on dapper. It works fine on edgy so it has probably
been fixed by a gdm new version. Marking as fixed according to that. The
fix is not likely to be backported to dapper, that's a corner case when
a broken theme is listed and easy to fix
