I do not like the symlink.  Same issue I have with the gnome-keyboard 
applet (which I still haven't found the proper fix for yet).  GDM needs 
a little bit of work, and looking at Bugzilla for it, there are lots of 
bugs in unconfirmed status.  Probably fat chance at a commit any time 
soon, but submit it anyway.  If you don't get to it, I'll take a shot at 
a complete 'buildfix' patch for us tomorrow evening...and separate it 
out for GDM's BZ.
