Bug Description

I'm was openning Gnome 3 from GDM 3. After a system upgrade, GDM does not opens Gnome in my language, and the character encoding is crazy at platform. I received a lot of crashes in other applications because the character encoding, like character conversions at software-center and other python based applications.

Now I'm back to Lightdm, all is working correctily, only with GDM my language desapear.

Could you please try again now that gdm 3.6.0 and gnome-shell 3.6.0 are available in Ubuntu 12.10 Beta?

I tried using a different language and it seemed to work for me.

Changed in gdm (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete

Do not worked. But I have 2 machines, only one (my netbook) has this behavior.
Can you help me to debug what can be wrong here?

Already purged GDM, and the same behavior. All other tested window managers (KDM, LightDM) works correctly.

Can you help me to debug this?
