Mandriva Linux Advisory MDKA-2007:116
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : gdm
Date : November 22, 2007
Affected: 2008.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A bug in IPv6 handling prevented gdm from connecting properly to
IPv4 XDMCP server (Mdv bug #35522). Default language list in gdm was
not using UTF-8 as default encoding (#35133). gdmsetup program was
always outputing debug information (Mdv bug #34304). Tab key could
not be used as Enter when typing username (Mdv bug #31589).

The update package fixes those issues, and provides additional
translations.
