 gdm (2.20.6-0ubuntu1) hardy-proposed; urgency=low
   * New upstream version (lp: #229866):
     - Fix two related bugs that were causing GDM to crash regularly on exit.
       Refer to bug #517526.
     - Fix a third bug that was causing the GDM daemon to crash occasionally when
       using gdmsetup.  This fix changes GDM so that when it receives an
       UPDATE_CONFIG command, it only updates the key specified rather than
       re-reading the entire configuration file.  Fixes bug #517526.
     - Sync to avoid any XIO errors after session exits.
     - Fix so that the XDMCP configuration values are read from the configuration
       file when the XDMCP manager is started rather than initialized.  It seems
       the related fixes implemented in 2.20.2 did not fully resolve this issue.
     - Fix bug that was causing GDM session desktop file marked as "Hidden=true"
       to show up in the Session dialog.
     - Fix gdmsetup bug that caused users to need to restart GDM in order for
       it to notice changes made in the "Server settings" dialog.
     - Fix gdmsetup so it does not save 24HourClock setting as a translated
       string, which was causing the configuration to get confused.
     - If the user's $HOME/.dmrc file does not exist, avoid calling gkeyfile
       functions.  This avoids useless gkeyfile warning messages about the file
       being NULL.  A previous fix in 2.20.1 minimized this problem by creating
       the file if it did not exist.  However, that does not always work if the
       user's $HOME directory is not writable (e.g. LiveCD).  So this fix avoids
       the warnings.
     - Add default OpenBSD Halt, Reboot and Suspend commands to the configure
     - Remove broken logic in the configure script that was trying to append
       ${prefix}/bin to the DefaultPath and RootPath.  Please use the
       --with-post-path configure option if you want to add custom directories
       to the end of DefaultPath and RootPath.
     - Fix the way the Xsession script is built so that distros can more easily
       add their own custom logic to the Xsession script.  Some Solaris specific
       code was moved to the Xsession.solaris file so that other distros do not
       get affected by this code.  Remove logic to normalize LC_ variables since
       this was causing problems for some users.  Refer to bug #509141
   * debian/patches/11_powermanagement.patch,
     - updated for the new version
   * debian/Xsession:
     - set the USERXSESSIONRC environment variable (lp: #229199)
