Mark Gordon posted a long summary of questions and answers about
Ximian 1.4 to support ximian com  Here's one: 

  KDE disappeared from my login menu

  No, this wasn't a conspiracy.  Our gdm on some platforms is looking
  in a different directory for session scripts.  This should be fixed
  soon.  In the meantime, you should be able to copy the session script
  from the old directory (typically /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions) to the one
  that gdm is currently using (typically /etc/gdm/Session).  If you're
  looking for a different login option that mysteriously disappeared,
  the fix should be similar.

The complete list can be found at:

It's a fairly long message. But it's definitely worth reading through
it: a lot of the recent gnome-list questions seem to be answered there.
