Not surprised.

No, it doesn't.  I'd already tried that.  GDM has refused any
customisation that I've tried since putting Fedora 9 on two computers,
here.

What I've currently got in the file, testing it:

--------- begin paste of /etc/gdm/custom.conf ----------
# GDM configuration storage

[greeter]
Browser=false
BackgroundImage=/usr/share/backgrounds/nature/FreshFlower.jpg
Exclude=testuser
-------- end paste ---------

Tried turning the browser off, tried changing the background, tried
explicitly listing usernames not to be displayed in the browser.  No
configuration controls have any effect.

I find it rather incredible that such radical changes were accepted to a
package to included in the distribution.  Even more so that it's never
been fixed.
