GDM/Gnome changed it up some and it doesn't work like it used it, which
I believe was F8 and below.  F9 goes along with a new setup and new
paramaters that can be used.  Below is the URL that describes what can
be used now, in which auto logon is no longer used, but you can still
use timed logins as stated above.
