Is this for non-kiosk sessions, then you probably haven't specified a 
valid path to the real greeter.

This should be
   Greeter=/opt/SUNWkio/lib/gdm/kioskgreeter /usr/lib/gdm/gdmlogin

If you don't specify a greeter as argument, the kiosk greeter tries to 
chain to  /usr/bin/gdmgreeter, which isn't valid for all Linux distros.
