I find this advice unhelpful. If something is broken, regardless of the
desktop environment, we want bug reports filed. Tom Horsley, just file a
bug report against GDM.
This has been fixed already. I don't know how we are doing wrt to
rawhide composes during the freeze, but a fixed gdm has been in koji for
more than a day now.
