A few more ideas, off the top of my head:

A "Rescue Mode" in GDM which goes to a root session with minimal apps,
marked as "Rescue Mode", rather than a root X login (even though it does
need root credentials).

A prompt upon the first time a user tried to login to a normal X session
via GDM as root (separate from the "Rescue Mode"), warning them of the
risk they're taking, with a small checkbox that says something like
"never show me this warning again".

To me it sounds like the original proposal of this thread from Warren.

It would be fine by me :)

Pierre
