Description (last modified by rbasch) (diff)

The new gdm in karmic tries to cache dmrc and face files in /var/cache/gdm/$USER/. At least for the dmrc file, this is copied from $HOME/.dmrc, if it exists (which it may not, as gdm apparently does not create it when using a default session), but the $USER subdirectory is created in any case. So we should:

1) Clean up the /var/cache/gdm/ subdirectories appropriately, at least on cluster machines.

2) Make sure we don't leave a "nocalls" default session setting in the cached dmrc, like we now do for $HOME/.dmrc.
