Yes, but that doesn't bring me back to gdm (which I didn't tell I wanted, hmm, 
okay). I'd rather know what 'C-t' means since all commands in ratpoison work 
that way (ratpoison shortcuts are emacs based, does that ring a bell 
somewhere?). I found different references to it, and at least Esc and Ctrl 
don't seem to work.
