/etc/sysconfig/i18n variables not being propagated into gdm X session

If you configure variables other than LANG in /etc/sysconfig/i18n such 
as LC_COLLATE, etc., they will not be propagated into your gdm invoked X 
session.  People who only set the LANG variable, won't notice this 
problem AFAIK.


I'm going to continue troubleshooting and see if I can determine the 
root cause, although I believe it is probably a glitch in the 
xorg-x11-xinit startup scripts.

If anyone else can reproduce this, please add comments to the bug report.
