Description of problem:
On my rawhide system both gdmgreeter and gdmlogin  
SEGV, and in both cases they SEGV immediately after the system call  
access("/var/gdm/.fonts", X_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory) 
I run the command "DOING_GDM_DEVELOPMENT=1 /usr/libexec/gdmgreeter" and get 
the error message "Could not access GDM configuration file." while the only 
unsuccessful file open that strace reports is for /usr/lib/charset.alias. 
SE Linux is not the cause of the problem, it is in permissive mode.

I eventually did a reinstall of the machine and the bug went away.  Not sure 
if it was a configuration problem or a bug in some library.  I'll open a new 
report if it happens again.
