Christian, thank you. I can confirm that your comment 10 fixed the same
problem as I reported it already in bug 408804.

Somebody please test if this affects release later than lucid.  bug
588811 looks similar and was reported against Maverick, but might have
been a Maverick-only problem.

  gdm can't login to any session

Status in “bash-completion” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gdm

  Description:	Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
  Release:	10.04

  After the last system  update I no longer can login to the system using the gdm login screen.
  gnome-session failsafe kde or even xterm all have the same effect that after I press the login button I simply en up back at the login prompt.

  I can login using the console.
  If I start xinit then gnome-session it looks to be working have not used it that much so I'm not sure if there is any ill effects of doing it this way.

  I have not found any information in any logs I know about and have
  failed to find any way to make more information available.

  I did modify the gdm.conf to strace everything but I'm not sure how
  it's supposed to work so it do not help me to find out where the
  problem is.
