+1

The funny thing is, the GDM config file even used to say in a comment that
anybody who disables root login "should be shot". That was back when GDM
actually had this as a config option, rather than the current PAM hack
which makes root login fail with a confusing error message because GDM
doesn't even understand what's going on. (The GDM rewrite dropped the old
option.)
