Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

gdm:x:42:42:GDM:/var/stat/gdm:/bin/bash (this is for old gdm before version 3)
it need probably changed by
gdm:x:42:42:GDM:/var/lib/gdm:/bin/bash (this is for gdm version 3)
because the new gdm work directory is /var/lib/gdm
this new directory is already your package.
the gdmsetup file in your package are probably obsolet
because i think gdm-setup, is not present in gdm version3
gmgf you are most probably 100% right, since this is alpha version, we need this to fix such kind of things, many thanks. Better is if you can fill up tickets on sf.net. Anyway thanks for pointing things out, and whatever you see not working is most probably wrong by our side.
gdmseup is something our script puts in because of the old gdm2 we had before.
So far, I don't remember we ever used /var/stat as gdm home. Anyway thanks and we will try to check this out. I'm aa bit busy these days but shortly we should have more things sorted out.
