gdm "faces" shows rpm user

I used gdmconfig to enable the "faces" feature during gdm log in. However,
gdm shows the "rpm" user, along with standard users and root. Seems like
this shouldn't be. Grep'ing through /etc/passwd, it looks like gdm is
showing any user with a real (non-false) shell. RPM has it's shell of
/bin/bash (is this as intented?), as shows up in gdm. Not a big bug, but
maybe gdm should only show "faces" for users of UID 500 and above?
