GDM upgrade breaks

When I booted my laptop this morning, I was greeted with a blank blue screen and the mouse cursor. Turns out yesterday's gdm upgrade was the culprit, apparently preventing X and/or Xfce from starting up properly.

After some fiddling, I managed to get back to tty1, which read (among other things):

gdm-binary[513]: GLib-GIO-CRITICAL: g_dbus_method_invocation_return_gerror: assertion `error != NULL` failed
gdm-binary[513]: GLib-CRITICAL: g_error_free: assertion `error != NULL` failed

Downgrading gdm (3.6.1-1 -> 3.4.1-3) fixed the issue.

Is this something I should report on the bug tracker?

I knew putting that off would come back to haunt me...
