Description Daniel Walsh 2007-05-15 10:58:09 EDT
If you install dbmail, you will see the "user" account that it creates in your
login screen.  It has a shell of /sbin/nologin so it will fail to login. 
Therefore the gui should not show this account.  dbmail is using fedora-useradd
to add the account and ends up with a UID > 500.  I am afraid just checking if
the account is < 500 is not enough.  You might have to hard code, checking for
the shells /sbin/nologin and /bin/false.

IMO, the bug is that /sbin/nologin is listed in /etc/shells
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2007-05-15 11:46:19 EDT
but maybe gdm should just filter these out
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-05-15 13:29:15 EDT
okay should fixed now, marking MODIFIED until the packages get tagged for f7.
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-05-15 13:42:37 EDT
