Well, I'm using Fedora 9, and nothing that I've tried stops that damn
user list appearing on GDM.  Neither does anything stop the inclusion of
names I want excluded.  I've even tried changing the background image,
and it ignores that instruction, too.

I've got no kind words for the thing.  It's not configurable.  It's slow
to fire up, *much* slower than the GDM logon screen on Fedora 7.  Every
log on requires cursoring through the list, or typing the name, since it
NEVER starts with reselecting the same name that logged in previously,
nor does the list appear to be in any detectable sorting order (user ID,
user name, real name, nothing).

I tried using XDM, instead, but it doesn't start something that Gnome
needs to run.  I don't want *anything* to do with KDE on my system, so
KDM's not getting a look in.

Just a straight type in username and password box, as it used to be,
would suit me.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
