Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
When using GDM 2.19 with KDE 3.5.7, the log out dialog in KDE does not show the Shutdown and Reboot options anymore. With GDM 2.18 this was no problem.
The reason is that GDM has moved its socket from /tmp/.gdm_socket to /var/run/gdm_socket. Creating a symlink makes this work again.
KDE should be adapted to detect the new path automatically. I attach a patch which probably will fix this for GDM 2.19 users. But probably KDE should rather try both possibilities.

Use /var/run/gdm_socket instead of /tmp/.gdm_socket
It would be nice if someone could take a look at this, as GDM 2.20 stable is out in the wild now.
This bug hit me in Debian unstable since a few days ago, when Gnome was updated to 2.20. The Ubuntu people took the short route to fixing it, see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kdebase/+bug/64695
fixed for kde 4.0 and 3.5.9.
