Package: gdm
Severity: normal

After apt-getting all gdm services stopped working, including local
display. Downgrading gdm to solves the problem. I'm puzzled.

What happens is: gdm starts, spawns X and gdmlogin, but gdmlogin eats
all free CPU untill you kill it.

I've an strace output of 270 MB, I'm bzip2ing it if you want it.
(by now it's very small compressed, but compression is unfinished)

I fixed it reinstalling gsfonts, so I'm closing the bug.
