 A complete rewrite of xdm(1). 
 It's the bit that displays the graphical login screen on a [GNOME] machine. 
-GDM (at least for version 2.4.0 and later) in Debian completely ignores your default language/encoding settings, even though the "locales" package sets up the LANG variable in the /etc/environment file. The package maintainer argues that this file is only supposed to be used by [PAM], so in the meantime nothing is done. Great.  
-The best workaround so far is to add  
- auth required  
-into /etc/pam.d/gdm so that the LANG variable gets set to your system's default.  
-Another method is to add the line  
- LANG=`grep ^LANG= /etc/environment | sed -e "s/^LANG=//"`  
-to /etc/init.d/gdm, although this is less tidy [IMHO].  
- and the thread containing  
-(This was fixed in gdm, see /etc/default/gdm.)
