Description Jef Spaleta 2002-03-28 03:27:43 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020314

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):

How reproducible:

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.  

Additional info:

ssh-agent is started by xinitrc et al in Red Hat Linux 8.0, this should
resolve the problem.
