If I manually edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf

and add the following in the [daemon] section

then the timed login works fine

I can confirm this bug to still be present in FC6.

This seems a similar bug as for the untimed autologin (as in bug #193752)

I believe this bug got fixed upstream some time ago.  If you're still
encountering the problem, feel free to reopen.
