System: NetBSD 4.0.1 NetBSD 4.0.1 (GENERIC.MP) #0: Tue Oct 7 23:15:59 PDT 2008 builds@wb30:/home/builds/ab/netbsd-4-0-1-RELEASE/i386/200810080053Z-obj/home/builds/ab/netbsd-4-0-1-RELEASE/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC.MP i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
>Description:
	xdm allows running a setup script that prepares the X server for xdm login.
However, this script is run after the greeter is started, and if the resolution changes as a result of running this script the greeter may be placed offscreen.

For example if I put a command for rotating the screen into this script the greeter is no longer centered on the screen.

>How-To-Repeat:
	Note: you may need to change the output name in the command below
	echo xrandr --output TMDS-1 --rotate right >> /usr/pkg/lib/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0
	kill the X server for screen 0 managed by xdm

 (1) does this still happen? (after all, it's been six years...)

 (2) has the problem been reported upstream? it is more of an upstream
 kind of issue than a pkgsrc one.
