Description Ralph Loader 2008-09-27 16:07:14 EDT
On a fresh install of rawhide [x86-64], and logging into the gnome desk top I get:

$ ss -ap
LISTEN     0      128                     *:60650                    *:*        users:(("gnome-session",6500,11))
LISTEN     0      128                    :::58934                   :::*        users:(("gnome-session",6500,10))

There is no reason for gnome-session to be attempting to expose itself to the outside world.

It should either be binding to localhost or [even better] using unix sockets [of which it has plenty open].

This was caused by a missing BuildRequires. 
Fixed in rawhide.
