Description David Jansen 2007-01-25 12:06:58 UTC
Description of problem:
If one modifies /etc/gdm/custom.conf to set SystemMenu=false (to disable
shutdown/reboot from the gdm screen, and from Gnome), older versions of Fedora 
(and RHEL) understood that change and didn't show the disabled items. In FC6,
the FedoraDNA  gdm theme had different settings, and it shows those items,
regardless of the SystemMenu setting.
In /usr/share/gdm/themes/FedoraDNA/FedoraDNA.xml :
<item type="rect" id="reboot_button" button="true">
   <show modes="console"/>
(and similar lines for the halt button)

As a comparison, the FedoraBubbles from FC5 has:
<item type="rect" id="reboot_button" button="true">
                        <show type="reboot" modes="console"/>

Adding the type="reboot" (and type="halt") in
/usr/share/gdm/themes/FedoraDNA/FedoraDNA.xml solves the problem.
