Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2884
gdm user in /etc/passwd should have password field of "*"
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
... otherwise the pseudo-user gdm shows up in the gdm face
"gdm" should be considered a "null" user like "ftp", "news",
I only log this because gdm is probably in line for an
update anyway because of another serious bug in it
Ican't duplicate this problem. Please reply with a complete scenario.
gdm needs to ignore users with password fields of "!!" as well as "*".
Patch has been sent to mkp to ignore the users with !! in passwd
