Just to be canonical, those suckers^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hfolks using gdm/xdm
can have sessions automaticly run under ssh-agent by following these
simple instructions:

You have to modify /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/* so that the commands have
"/usr/bin/ssh-agent" in front of them.  For example:

	[root at sylvia gdm]# cat Sessions/Default
	#!/bin/bash -login

	/usr/bin/ssh-agent /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession
	[root at sylvia gdm]#

 Why would I want to be a Doctor, when I could be a MASTER?
