Bug#495797: an xdmcp enabled gdm crashes if an Xwilling script runs

I've been experiencing the same problem (gdm receiving SIGABRT on
session exit), and the workaround (removing the Xwilling file from
/etc/gdm) fixed this.

I haven't tried the patch provided.  If it works, I think it would be
a good idea to include this in proposed-updates for lenny.

If the bug is not considered grave enough for a fix for stable, then
at least it should be well documented in the release notes or the
like, since it can be very frustrating to have your gdm stop every
time you log out.
