Problem description

Trying to establish an XDMCP session to a machine running xdm would
result in a blue screen and an X cursor that could be moved with the
mouse but no login greeter. After 2 to 3 minutes, the launching tty
would say XDM: too many retransmissions, declaring session dead.

This update fixes the issue.
