[OpenAFS] loging into afs: ssh vs gdm

Hello all,

I have afs (the client) working on the OpenSSI cluster.

"Everything" seems to work, I can login with ssh and so far everything
seems to be working as it should.
(However I do see:
Oct 31 10:56:49 oort gdm(pam_unix)[67775]: authentication failure;
logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=cowboy.cs.depauw.edu:0 ruser=
rhost=cowboy.cs.depauw.edu  user=cowboy
show up, but pam_afs/pam_ldap seem to do the job and I get logged in

Now ..  I cannot login with gdm/xdm, it looks like I get logged in but
the session terminates immediately.
I see the same entry in /var/log/messages as above  and this one:
Oct 31 10:56:49 oort gdm(pam_unix)[67775]: session opened for user
cowboy by (uid=0)
and that's not correct, uid should be 1219

Any ideas about what is going on here ? (local drug store is already
wondering what I need that much advil for)
