comment Login screen problem, boots into text mode instead of GDM
Did you try the recovery mode (usually available from the Grub boot manager menu) and reconfigure your xorg.conf ?

comment How are typical users expected to read the documentation in /usr/share/doc?
+1 for the detail. As for me, as also mentioned by @nelaar, I just add a few directives to the Apache <Directory "/usr/share/doc/"> directory declaration (usually in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default) and I believe decompression is handled by the browsers themselves. (AddEncoding x-gzip gz tgz and AddType text/plain .gz).

I'm not too sure if this is a different solution. I've just added AddEncoding x-gzip gz tgz AddType text/plain .gz to my <Directory "/usr/share/doc/"> entry and I believe the decompression is actually handled on the client side.
