Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

A bug in IPv6 handling prevented gdm from connecting properly to IPv4
XDMCP server (Mdv bug #35522). Default language list in gdm was not
using UTF-8 as default encoding (#35133). gdmsetup program was always
outputing debug information (Mdv bug #34304). Tab key could not be
used as Enter when typing username (Mdv bug #31589).

The update package fixes those issues, and provides additional
translations.
