I noticed one of the first comments is someone who missed one of the
points of Peters work. At GDM you can still C-A-B all you want, the user
preference only takes control when you login. So in those cases where
you have gdm in the wrong resolution etc you can still quickly do it.

Its unlikely anyone minds losing their username they typed at the gdm
prompt.
