  Modified files:
    x11/gdm              Makefile 
    x11/gdm/files        patch-daemon_slave.c 
  Correct a severe security issue if a user without a home directory logs in
  via GDM.  In such a case, the user would have had root:gdm privileges.
  This is now fixed by correctly changing back to the user's uid:gid.
