Description of problem:
Timed login in GDM fails to start if there is a trailing space after the username

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm-2.30.4-64.el6.x86_64

How reproducible:
1. Add timed login parameters to /etc/gdm/custom.conf
TimedLoginEnable=true
TimedLogin=username_   <- _ means a blank space
TimedLoginDelay=5

2. Restart GDM
pkill gdm-binary

Actual results:
No automated login after 5 secs

Expected results:
After 5 secs the username should be logged in automatically.

Additional info:
The same behaviour occurs for TimedLoginEnable parameter. TimedLogin Delay works as expected.
