GDM 3.22.* does not source /etc/profile on user login, which presents a serious issue as the environment is not correctly configured. E.g.

Additional info:

GDM 3.22.1-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

3. Check environment and see that it's missing variables set in /etc/profile and scripts in /etc/profile.d/*
