+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #181302 +++

Description of problem:
The x86_64 bit version of AS4 (fully patched) appears to ignore tcp_wrappers completely when using gdm with XDMCP. The 32 bit version of AS4 works perfectly so this bug appears to be restricted to the 64bit version. I suspect the problem with the wrappers on the 64 bit version may be a bit more general than just XDMCP access as I tested a telnet server and while the wrappers are not completely ignored connections are not refused cleanly (You donât get the login prompt but you are still hooked up to the machine). The 32 bit version again works perfectly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Instll the OS
2. Configure gdmsetup to allow remote XDMCP conectivity
3. configure hosts.deny to restrict conections all:all

Actual Results:  no restriction to remote desktop

Expected Results:  remote desktop should have been refused

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 was reached end of Production Phase and transitioned to Extended Life Phase.  Component 'gdm' is excluded from the RHEL 4 ELS coverage and therefore this bug is no longer needed.
