The RPM is gdm-2.0beta2-24 so it sounds like I need to upgrade that. 
Would it 
generally be easier to just upgrade to 7.2 or does that not help
either?  
I haven't bothered with an upgrade yet because I am behind a dedicated
firewall
and did not need the security patches.

I will try to upgrade at least gdm and let you guys know. :)

Thank you very much.  This sounds like something to add to the linux
instructions.
