You're right...somehow I managed to put the xdm Xresources in the wrong
place. BUT xdm-config was pointed to it, so it still should have worked
- in theory.
Anyway, I moved the file to /etc/X11/xdm and changed the xdm-config
reference, so I'd have a "standard" setup again. Upon rebooting, I
could no longer log in at all. After entering the user/pass I'd drop
right back to the xdm screen. There must be something else that I
changed a reference in because of the wrong file location, that I need
to change back now.

Hopefully I can ignore it then...

I'll have to give this a try. Does it dump a file somewhere?
