Description of problem:
The "Happy Gnome w/ Browser" gdm theme with users in the include list (either a single user or "all users") causese gdm to crash when it is restarted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
188.8.131.52-2 and 184.108.40.206-7
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5-test2 with the default package selection
2. Log in to gnome as root (or as a user then su to root) and run gdmsetup
3. Change the gdm theme to "Happy Gnome w/ Browser"
4. Click on the "Users" tab and select "Include all users...", or manually enter the non-root user created during firstboot
5. Press "Close" to save and apply the changes
Actual Results: The user is logged out and gdm fails to restart. After 6 failures the text console presents a warning dialog that "The display server has been shut down 6 times in the past 90 seconds. It is likely that something bad is going on. Waiting for 2 minutes before trying again on display :0"
Expected Results: The new gdm theme with the face browser appears.
This happens in both FC5-test2 and FC5-test2 with the latest updates. I do not see this problem on my FC4 box. It doesn't appear to be an X problem because rhgb runs fine. This only seems to happen when I use both the Happy Gnome w/ Browser theme and a user list. If I use only one of the two then it works fine. The problem still appears even after a reboot.
FWIW, I'm running this in a VMWare virtual machine.
This works on current rawhide, would you please test again?

.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
Closing after receiving no reply in 2 months. Worksforme in FC5
