Description of problem:
When choosing a non-default session in GDM, a popup box is displayed
saying the change can be made permanent by running "System->Desktop
Switching Tool" (switchdesk). This icon has been removed. switchdesk
is still installed but no icon is present.

Either the icon should be re-instated or the popup instructions
changed to a more xsession-friendly direction.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot machine in init 5
2. Choose non-default session type
3. Read popup, login and try to follow instructions.
