Comment 1 James Laska 2008-10-16 19:24:39 EDT
Additional info:

 * I can manually run startx to start a users desktop environment
 * I have tried logging into gdm as an existing user, and a newly created user to rule out any user-specific configuration interference

According to an email side thread, this went away with the latest selinux updates.
