Any chance you could post your complete XDMCP configuration section from
your gdm.conf file to this list? I'm getting the same symptoms as
Jason.Pincin, with one additional note:

My inittab file tells my X terminal to run "X -bpp 16 -query <xhostname>"
in runlevel 5. This results in the default gray background with X-shaped
cursor, and the message "XDM: too many retransmissions" on the console.

Any pointers?
