Patch that makes the GDM daemon (rather than the forked slave) cause all
2006-12-04 Brian Cameron <email@example.com> * daemon/errorgui.c, daemon/gdm.[ch], daemon/slave.c, daemon/verify-pam.c: Patch that makes the GDM daemon (rather than the forked slave) cause all dialogs to be displayed. This improves accessibility for GDM because any AT programs (such as GOK, Gnopernicus or Orca) which are launched from GDM will now better work with such dialogs. This is needed because dialogs will show up running as the user if they appear after authentication and at this point the at-spi-registryd is running as the gdm user. We want all GDM dialogs to run as the gdm user. Patch by Leena Gunda <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Srirama Sharma <Srirama.Sharma@Sun.COM>. Note that there have been some reports that this change triggers GDK bug #376315 on Linux when a11y is turned off. This will probably need to be fixed before the next stable release. I think this a11y fix is important enough to introduce this bug in the development cycle. Workaround for now is to turn on a11y.
