I strongly suggest you read over the system documentation on how
pam_console works and the associated configuration files in an effort
to understand how things are configured by default.  My limited
understanding of the default situations is that remote  xdmcp
connections are not considered 'console'. But don't take my word for
it, i haven't gotten around to testing xdmcp during fc3 testing yet.
If you are concerned I encourage you to test the remote xdmcp
connection case and make sure the defaults are not configured to set
the xdmcp user as console owner.  Here's a hint the files in
/var/run/console/ are particularly useful to watch, to figure out who
is the current 'console' user.
