This should be fixed in today's rawhide with gdm-1:2.15.3-6, and also in
FC5-updates with gdm-1:2.14.4-1.fc5.3.  If you'd like to fix it right
away, edit your /usr/share/gdm/defaults.conf file, and replace
occurances of "/usr/X11R6/bin" with "/usr/bin".

Both these issues affect all architectures AFAIK.  If there's not
already a bug for the mixer applet issue, please file one.  The gdm
issue has already been filed and fixed.
