And it was this last bit that was broken!

In the mela that is pre-release, I forgot that it was Olav who pushed
the new version of GDM, not myself. I had rediffed and converted all the
GDM patches relating to plymouth transition in my build, but Olav just
disabled them (knowing I'd already done the work).

So I've updated gdm and submitted it for rebuild. Should be all dandy
again shortly.

Thanks for pointing it out!
