Same thing with Fedora 10. So with the disable_user_list option, users must always select their Language and Sessions if they don't use the defaults...

I've had the same problem with Fedora 9 and Fedora 10.  Let me know if there's anything I should try.
Comment 4 Andrew McNabb 2009-04-02 14:53:14 EDT
I tried Fedora 11 Beta, and I'm pretty sure this bug had not been fixed.  This has been stagnating for a long time, so I just added an upstream bug on GNOME's bugzilla (#577756).
Comment 5 Andrew McNabb 2009-04-15 11:16:06 EDT
It looks like gdm-2.26.0-7 included a patch to fix this.  I'll try to test it soon.
Comment 6 Andrew McNabb 2009-04-15 11:45:08 EDT
I can confirm that gdm-2.26.0-7 fixes the problem.

Thanks for testing.
