Description Chris Rosewarne 2006-04-23 09:19:11 EDT
Description of problem:

Enabling automatic login of a user, with System -> Administration -> Login
Screen on the GNOME menu does not work.  In this screen, a drop-down box appears
which contains no user names present on that system.  I expected it to contain a
list of user names to select one for automatic login.  On manually typing in a
username the screen does not remember the selection when I reopen it.  Finally,
on booting the machine, no automatic login occurs.

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

GNOME 2.14.1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 'System->Administration->Login Screen'
2. Manually type in a username to login (should be able to select from list)
3. Reboot machine
Actual results:
Presented with login screen

Expected results:
Selected user would be automatically logged in

Additional info:
I have not tested, but I suspect Timed Login may be broken too (no user
selection available)
