Default gdm error on first login ( second login OK )

I am getting the message
User's $HOME/.dmrc is being ignored etc etc...
The users home directories are automounted via nfs
the user info and authentication is via ldap

If I manually alter .dmrc in the users home directory on the
server the client will use the second time they log in
but not the first ( since a reboot ) it but I can't change
it from the client

So if I put Session=kde in .dmrc on the server for user1
then reboot the client machine and log in as user1 I will
get that message and a Gnome desktop . If I log out and
log back in again I don't get the message and I get KDE

Default gdm error etc etc

One of those links was very enlightening

Maybe you know - Is gdm still 'root' at the point it reads .dmrc
before the desktop starts - If so the nfs share would have to
be set as treat remote root as local otherwise it doesn't have
any rights on the server end

??

best wishes

I don't think so, but I'm not sure.
