Description of problem:
I have no real statistics but I'd bet most people using gdm are using it on
personal computers, not targeted (by default) at exporting X to other users.
That way, gdm should not launch X allowing it to listen to tcp connections.
This has a very simple fix and has been corrected in GDM (cvs.gnome.org) but
correction has not yet been integrated into RedHat's gdm.
More details at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=87291
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all versions untill current cvs (in gnome.org)
Steps to Reproduce:
default settings for run level 5
Actual Results: tcp port 6000 is on LISTEN status
Expected Results: tcp port 6000 NOT on LISTEN status
Accidentally I submitted this same to Rawhide's bugs just few moments ago:
