[xubuntu-users] PBIS and *DM login

Hello everybody,

I downloaded some development snapshot of xubuntu more ore less three weeks 
ago, and installed PowerBroker Identity Services Open Edition (formerly 
Likewise Open). Then I configured /home as NFSv3 mount in /etc/fstab.

Console login works correctly both for local and domain users. X11 works when 
invoked by "startx" after console login for both local and domain users. 
LighDM / gdm login works only for local users (also if they have their $HOME 
NFS mounted): for domain users the login window goes away (password accepted) 
just as expected, but then the  X11 session crashes immediately and 
LightDM/gdm respawns.

Nothing useful in /var/log/Xorg.0.log and nothing useful in 

Now I'm going to download a more recent snapshot, but I can't try it out until 
Thursday. Meanwhile is there anything you believe I should look at? (I do have 
ssh access to the current setup).

Thanks in advance
