Bug#684120: gdm3: GDM3 started twice during start up

Package: gdm3
Version: 3.4.1-2
Severity: normal

Dear Debian folks,

looking at the output of bootchart2 [1] it looks like GDM3 is started
twice during system start. Once by the process `rc` and once by the
`init`. Is that expected? I would think starting it once should be
sufficient. Please note that the end user only sees one instance but
bootchart2 show two `gdm3` processes being started.

Please find the chart attached.
