Description of problem:
gdmsetup auto login feature does not work with root.
this is right, but you should add some type of warning about this,
ie when a user inserts "root" and try to close the window a dialog should popup
saying that the root user is not permitted.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gdmsetup (start here -> system settings -> login screen)
2. enable automatic login
3. insert root in the text field
4. click close button

should be fixed in upstream HEAD cvs and thus in GNOME 2.6
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-11-04 22:40:18 EST
This is fixed now.
