If found my problem, its a name resolver issue (thank you Mr Cox :-D )
I think email is on a go-slow, please look back if you have time.

Some comments on this and a few other things

1) gdm doesn't have a process itself, it runs from init - but when gdm
is started it seems to undergo a name change to "gdm-binary" without
being owned by gdm or anything called gdm. As a result its not possible
to cleanly restart gdm ? ie no "/etc/init.d/gdm restart". Am I missing
something here or this a bit naff ? 

2) If the reverse name doesn't resolve the only entry in the log with
debugging off is :
Jan 20 10:57:19 localhost gdm[7118]: gdm_child_action: Aborting display
jonspc:1


3) Speaking of logs, this is only a machine for "play" - so if its not
been owned, and the following is normal, then the log should have
something less pant wetting than this - something above or below
explaining what process is doing this and/or why would be nice.
