Package: gdm
Severity: important
Tags: sid patch

The gdm package in sid isn't restarted correctly upon upgrade and 
requires manual intervention. Adding the following code to the postinst 
should fix this:

# Soft restart of the display manager
# NOTE: the binary on disk most likely has changed, so we can't use --exec
if start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --name gdm --signal 0 --pid "$pidfile"; then  if [ -w "$fifofile" ]; then
    (echo;echo SOFT_RESTART) >> "$fifofile"
