Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: gdm
Just today I tried to restart gdm with sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart from
an X terminal. The server shut down (it took quite some time, > 10
seconds, for a while I thought the system crashed), and I was left
looking at a text console.
/var/log/daemon.log has this:
Jan 17 22:31:02 localhost gdm: Display :0 is busy. There is another X server running already.
Jan 17 22:31:05 localhost gdm: Display :0 is busy. There is another X server running already.
Looks like /etc/init.d/gdm restart does not wait for the current gdm to
fully shut down before it tries to start a new one.
** Affects: gdm (Ubuntu)
