GDM2 2.17.8 (unstable), the "Lhasa" Release


If you have no clue what GDM is, refer to the documentation links

The 2.17.8 release is an unstable release of GDM with the following
new features.

  so it doesn't conflict with the "Start Again" button.
- Now AlwaysLoginCurrentSession is set to true by default.

- Fix spacing in gdmsetup so it uses less vertical space.  (Lukasz

- Fix gdmchooser so it builds with HURD.

- Fix comparison with string literal in gdmdynamic.  (Hans Petter

  needed for GNOME to run properly.  (Brian Cameron)
