Last time I checked, xdm's PAM "support" was seriously broken with respect
to Kerberos and AFS (ccache created for and owned by root, PAG created in
the daemon instead of the session leader --- the latter won't be noticeable
unless you use xdmcp). On the other hand, this was not stock xdm, it was
someone's (Red Hat?) hack.
