gdm forgets about default and last sessions

Description of problem:
After an update to gdm-2.15.5-2 after I typed login data
I am getting now a curious alert:
Do you with to make Default System
Session the default for further sessions?
Your preferred session type default desktop
is not installed on this computer
Among offered options "Cancel" does what it is promissing.
Other two, i.e. "Just Log In" and "Make Default" allow to login
but none seems to have any lasting effects.
What is more - even after "switching" to a "GNOME" session,
and making _that_ a future default, on the next login I am
greeted with the same alert.
It does not matter if I am using /usr/libexec/gdmlogin or
a truly boring :-) /usr/libexec/gdmgreeter.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Facing the same symptom. The same version is installed.
I also tried forcing a change of DE with switchdesk, but still get prompted on
I use kde, and have the same problem. I elect to make kde the default, but
gnome starts anyway. I have to log out and change session.
I encounter the same behavior using gnome under gdm-2.15.6-3.
should be fixed now. reopen if no.
