Thank you very much for your suggestion :). Once I changed my display manager from gdm to kdm, I can easily login/logout as many times as I like without the graphical display hanging. This is great, as it means that linux is one step more forward towards user-friendliness for my users (who I am trying to shift to linux, and they use mapped drives in windows).
However, a new problem has now cropped up, and I was wondering if anyone has a solution: when the computer is not on the network, the network/server is down, or the computer is elsewhere at the time, then the server used to provide the network mounted file will not be available. The login hangs, waiting for a response from the server. I am considering changing the "/sbin/mount.cifs" line to a custom script which will first ping the server in question (I will keep ping open in the firewall of course), and which will mount the share only if the server is reachable.
cifsmount /sbin/mount.cifs //%(SERVER)/%(VOLUME) %(MNTPT) -o "username=%(USER),uid=%(USERUID))"
However, I am still trying to find any pieces of information that I may be missing that obviate the need to write such a custom script. Hope to hear from you all soon.
Thank you in advance,

My name is Cristobal and I'm from Quito-Ecuador, my English is not too good,
but I hope you can understand me.
HELP ME, PLEASE! I have your same problem with pam_mount and fedora 5. I'm
searching in the web and I don't find nothing that correct this problem.
In somewhere I read: edit /etc/sysconfig/desktop and add:
But for me, it didn't work, maybe you have more lucky.
Let me know if you resolve this problem.
Thank you very much.
