Hi Sean,

Did you restart (or at least gdm-restart) after the changes to
custom.conf? A "telinit 3; telinit 5" ought to do it too. Also, what
does this return:

gdmflexiserver --command="GET_CONFIG security/RelaxPermissions"

FWIW, I've got RelaxPermissions=1 doing the right thing on a K12LTSP5 server.
