Description of problem: Timed login via the custom.conf method is not working anymore. 

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Add following lines into file:  /etc/gdm/custom.conf
2. Run "systemctl restart gdm"

Actual results: The timed login progress bar never appears and the user is never automatically logged in after 10 second. 

Expected results: The specified user is automatically logged in after the specified 10 seconds.

More info: Timed login works when the user list is disabled.

seems to be a mistake introduced when one of the downstream patches got rebased:

+                                                          let currentTime = GLi

should be:

+                                                          let currentTime = GLib.get_monotonic_time();•

I can verify this now works on gnome-shell-3.26.2-4.el7.
