I have had problems (on different GNU distro's and OpenBSD) with at
least SLiM, GDM and LightDM, ranging from usability ("Do I press Tab or
Enter now?") to forgettability ("I didn't order GNOME!") to not
using .xsession.

Now I tend to use XDM where I can.  For me it is always working as
expected in all the above respects.
