Description From cendio 2014-05-26 16:01:30
On bug 5104, we introduced setting of PAM_XDISPLAY. However, not all
distributions support this. For example, on RHEL5 the session fails to start
with error:

2014-05-26 14:55:02 WARNING tl-session: pam_set_item(PAM_XDISPLAY) failed: 29
(Bad item passed to pam_*_item())

A return of PAM_BAD_ITEM should not be critical.

Works well on RHEL5 now. Need to verify that PAM_XDISPLAY still works on newer
distributions as well.

Confirmed that PAM_XDISPLAY still works on Fedora 20.
