Changes since 1.0.3:

  - Xorg bug #4765 <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4765>
    xdm doesn't work with the pam_krb5 module (call pam_getenvlist
    after pam_setcred)  (Constantine Sapuntzakis)

  - Solaris check to restrict root logins to console changed
    to check for uid 0 instead of username "root" (Sun bug #6413255)

  - Add "inline" to max function definition & AC_C_INLINE to configure.ac

  - When clearing username & password buffers, zero out the entire buffer,
    not just the first byte, for reduced risk of leaking passwords into
    core dumps.

  - tarballs built with libtool 1.5.22 instead of 1.5.2 (including 2005
    versions of config.guess/.sub)

CVS tag: xdm-1_0_4

Additionally, a new branch point has been created, xdm-1_0-branch, which
will be used for any further changes for the X11R7.1 release cycle, while
the HEAD branch will soon start getting some bigger changes as I merge in
changes from the Solaris xdm sources.
