I think most of the gdm bugs have been fixed now in followup uploads.
The major things I'm still aware of are:
- bug 395324 (spurious dialog "cannot save session blabla")
- no timed login

... and that one. Robert Ancell recently mentioned that he wants to
look into writing a replacement for the new gdm.
