They're falling down in many ways (recently, on a CentOS forum, someone,
in saying that they weren't saying someone was useless came out with the
phrase, "I'm not saying it's as useful as RedHat Bugzilla..." which I
found amusing, but...

This one doesn't sound right. I'm wondering if there was something that
went wrong in the installation.  Although I seldom use GDM, from time to
time, I'll do a quick install with defaults, (i.e., booting into GDM)
and I haven't run into that issue.

I'll be the first to agree that they frequently break things--their
decision to tie sound to console kit is a prime example--but was this
the case on more than one installation?
