Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

XDMCP logins work the first time in Lucid, but not the second time due to an uninitialized structure.
The relevant 2-line patch in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=579033#61 has been accepted upstream and is included in Maverick+.
Please backport it to lucid-updates.

If anyone needs this before it's backported, I've uploaded a fixed .deb in my ppa:

Thanks, I've sponsored your update, it will take some weeks to be reviewed though since lucid is frozen at the moment for the coming point update

Runs fine on my i386 Lucid:

$ dpkg-query -W gdm
gdm 2.30.2.is.2.30.0-0ubuntu5

Connected via XDMCP about 10 times in a row with no problems.
