Well the thing is that this has worked for years and years before ConsoleKit
came and there should be no need to introduce these kind of regressions even if
ConsoleKit brings in some additional features.

Anyway, I inspected this "own hand-rolled session" thingy and found the command
ck-xinit-session (but no man page or command line help for it). If put to
~/.xinitrc it does not help. If run from a terminal after GNOME is launched
mpg123 etc work ok.

BUT! When hitting Ctrl+C to quit mpg123 the whole system is shut down! Yes,
this is just insane: I had a root session on another console but when a regular
user innocently just tried to stop his application with Ctrl+C under GNOME, the
whole system went down in flames.

I am changing the component to 'pam' as suggested to see if they could apply
the proposed fix in Comment 17.
