Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

xorg 1:7.5+5ubuntu1 added /etc/X11/Xreset{,.d}, which means that admins can drop scripts in /etc/X11/Xreset.d/ to run after the user logs out. Gdm needs to run Xreset in PostSession/Default to support it. I know that admins can already use PostSession/:0 etc, but Xreset.d works with other *dm's too (when they support it, AIUI Debian has them already).

Changed in gdm (Debian):

Here's a debdiff from the change, stolen from Debian and adapted to our version.

This is a pity, as we depend on the Xreset functionality. This is a major drawback when using Ubuntu; could this bug be reopened (and possibly fixed), please?
