Description of problem:
(Note: my default session is GNOME)

After selecting the default session (or GNOME session) in gdm, gdm displays a
message stating:

"Could not find or run the base session script, will try the GNOME failsafe
session for you."

It then successfully starts the GNOME failsafe session.
/var/log/messages shows:

gdm[4418]: gdm_slave_session_start: Cannot find or run the base Xsession script,
will try GNOME failsafe

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select GNOME session in gdm
2. Log in

Actual Results:  An error message shows, and the GNOME failsafe session is started.

Expected Results:  The user's GNOME session should start
