It would probably make sense to do what Xsession (the xdm session script)
does, reopen stdout/stderr from the session to '~/.xsession-errors'.

Simple.  The errors are there, just not in your face.

And if you really wanted it, your applet could just monitor that file
... or if you really cares, you could use named pipes or something
(either way, the output has to go through a file descriptor).

If gdm doesn't do this, then it is certainly a problem with it, but
not gnome as a whole.
