2.20.6 Stuff:

- Fix two related bugs that were causing GDM to crash regularly on exit.
  Refer to bug #517526.  (Brian Cameron)

- Fix a third bug that was causing the GDM daemon to crash occasionally when
  using gdmsetup.  This fix changes GDM so that when it receives an
  UPDATE_CONFIG command, it only updates the key specified rather than
  re-reading the entire configuration file.  Fixes bug #517526.  (Brian

- Sync to avoid any XIO errors after session exits.  (Ray Strode)

- Fix so that the XDMCP configuration values are read from the configuration
  file when the XDMCP manager is started rather than initialized.  It seems
  the related fixes implemented in 2.20.2 did not fully resolve this issue.
  (Brian Cameron)

- Fix bug that was causing GDM session desktop file marked as "Hidden=true"
  to show up in the Session dialog.  (Brian Cameron)

- Fix gdmsetup bug that caused users to need to restart GDM in order for
  it to notice changes made in the "Server settings" dialog.  (Brian

- Fix gdmsetup so it does not save 24HourClock setting as a translated 
  string, which was causing the configuration to get confused.  (Brian

- If the user's $HOME/.dmrc file does not exist, avoid calling gkeyfile 
  functions.  This avoids useless gkeyfile warning messages about the file
  being NULL.  A previous fix in 2.20.1 minimized this problem by creating
  the file if it did not exist.  However, that does not always work if the
  user's $HOME directory is not writable (e.g. LiveCD).  So this fix avoids
  the warnings.  (Brian Cameron)

- Add default OpenBSD Halt, Reboot and Suspend commands to the configure
  script.  (Jasper Lievisse Adriaanse)

- Remove broken logic in the configure script that was trying to append
  ${prefix}/bin to the DefaultPath and RootPath.  Please use the 
  --with-post-path configure option if you want to add custom directories
  to the end of DefaultPath and RootPath.  (Brian Cameron)

- Fix the way the Xsession script is built so that distros can more easily
  add their own custom logic to the Xsession script.  Some Solaris specific
  code was moved to the Xsession.solaris file so that other distros do not
  get affected by this code.  Remove logic to normalize LC_ variables since
  this was causing problems for some users.  Refer to bug #509141  (Takao
