1.230.1. RHBA-2009:1653: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1653
An updated xorg-x11-xdm package that fixes a bug is now available.
xorg-x11-xdm provides a legacy display login manager for the X Window System.
This updated xorg-x11-xdm package fixes the following bug:
* the xorg-x11-xdm package contained two PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) configuration files: "xdm" and "xserver". Because the xorg-x11-xdm package only requires the use of the "xdm" PAM configuration file, this update removes the second, spurious and unused PAM configuration file from the xorg-x11-xdm package. (BZ#506535)
All users of xorg-x11-xdm are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
