I wasn't able to get gdm working with anything than Gnome
(and it completely ignores ~/.xsession, forcing you to
manually configure "Autostart" applications for each user),
so I replaced it with slim. Personally, I prefer xdm with
an ~/.xsession -> ~/.xinitrc "cascade" so plain startx
will still work. ;-)

Yes, I have the same setting on a reference system, except that
the line is

	exec ck-launch-session mate-session

to make sure X will shut down (and maybe return to gdm or slim)
when the controlling MATE session has been terminated.
