Not really. The only thing that seems odd. Why are you using gdm? Is
there a reason why you are not using lightdm?

Is this a machine that has been upgraded a number of times? If so, do
you have an old Xorg.conf file in play? If that is the case, it may be
worth backing it up to a safe place and running without it.

After that, I am out of ideas! :-)
