Frank, that works perfectly. However, copying gdm.sh.sample as
gdm.sh so that "stop" will work also starts gdm on boot, and I
don't want that.
However, I now see what gdm.sh is doing. The command, from that
file, is 'killall -m gdm 2' and that is much simpler than running
top, identifying the PID and then killing the gdm binary.
Thanks for showing me the way!
