Description of problem:
gdm crashes after adding user to face browser include list. See steps to reproduce.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade gdm to gdm-
2. reboot
3. logon as root ok, except kde session instead of default gnome session came up.
3. using menu, modify gdm (btw, I really like the new gdmsetup gui) to use plain
with face browser.
4. logoff
5. new greeter comes up, select gnome session, logon as root.  All ok.
6. using menu, modify gdm to enable logging, allow tcp forwarding.  Logoff
7. logon as root, all ok.
8. using menu, modify gdm to add user kunkelc for face browser.  Logoff
9. problem starts now, gdm tries 6 times, then quits for 2 minutes.  Use time to
logon as root and delete user kunkelc from gdm.conf-custom.  Reboot
10. can now logon again without gdm probs  

Actual Results:  See steps to reproduce

Expected Results:  Should be able to add user(s) to face browser list and gdm should start normally.

What gdm theme are you using?

Can you attach your /etc/X11/gdm/custom.conf file?

Comment 2 Clyde E. Kunkel 2006-01-27 22:37:01 UTC
Created attachment 123807 [details]

Comment 3 Clyde E. Kunkel 2006-02-03 15:39:24 UTC
Not sure why this is still needinfo reporter, responded in #2.  Did I forget to
check something?  Anyway, after the latest (maybe latest 2) gdm updates, I
tested adding myself as a user for face browsing and now it works.  Tried on two
systems, both rawhide up-to-date, one a clean FC5T2 updated with rawhide.  Would
like to keep open thru FC5T3, if that is ok.
