Description of problem:
The way the gdm Session scripts are written ssh-agent is not started if the
switchdesk gnome config is in place.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose Gnome session in gdm with the switchdesk packaged installed
2.If switchdesk is not present...the next segment of Xsession logic will call
Expected Results: I would expect that that the switchdesk gnome client would
attempt to make a call to ssh-agent gnome-session,
There are several places inside the Xsession script where the actually
gnome-session command can get called. In some places gnome-session is started
with ssh-agent...and in other parts of the logic gnome-session is called
directly. It would be nice if all the defualt logic included a call to ssh-agent.
ssh-agent is started by xinitrc et al in Red Hat Linux 8.0, this should
resolve the problem.
Closing bug as CURRENTRELEASE
