Why does gdm use a special directory for XAUTHORITY? Is this
a bug or a feature?

Why does the display look so weird:

#ffff#6d6167656c6c616e#:0

?

Is it really a valid display:

mfabian@magellan:~$ xauth remove '#ffff#6d6167656c6c616e#:0'
xauth: (argv):1: bad display name "#ffff#6d6167656c6c616e#:0" in
"remove" command
mfabian@magellan:~$

?
