Good morning,

as quick work around you can start gdm the old way:
/usr/X11R6/etc/rc.d/xxxxxxserver.sh (will start the script as late as
# erstellt: 15.11.2004
# ==================================


case "$1" in
                export LANG=de
                export LANGUAGE=de
                export LC_TYPE=de_DE.8859-15
                export LC_ALL=de_DE.8859-15
                /usr/bin/killall -m gdm 2>/dev/null
                echo "Usage: `basename $0` start | stop"
                exit 64

exit 0

Hope this will help you.

Best regards
