I have a feeling that Paul's solution won't work because GDM in Fedora
9 (unless it's changed massively since I upgraded) isn't configured in
GConf. You will probably find that my /etc/gdm/custom.conf solution
works, because when I wrote that customisation in our organisational
installer, that is what I was using.
