Description of problem:

If you select 'Restart GDM' on Fedora login screen, it reboots Fedora.
It should restart GDM, not restart OS.
Pressing CTRL+ALT+Backspace works as expected.

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

Fedora 10 with and without the latest updates.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 10 normally. Apply the latest updates if you wish.
2. On the login screen press 'Restart GDM' button.
3. The OS reboots.
Actual results:

The Fedora reboot.

Expected results:

Only the GDM should reboot.

Not sure if ctrl-alt-backspace work either because if I change display manager and then press ctrl-alt-backspace to try restart X, the display manager doesn't change. You have to reboot OS to take effect another display manager.

There is no restart-gdm button, there is only a restart-your-system button (next to a suspend-your-system button and a shutdown-your-system button)

Yes, true - when you choose system English language, you can see buttons
Suspend - Restart - Shutdown
But when you switch to Finnish, the English 'Restart'-button is translated 
'Käynnistä GDM uudelleen" (in english: Restart GDM), which is wrong - it should be 'Käynnistä järjestelmä uudelleen'.

Seems this is a localization bug.

This seems to be fixed in F11, hence closing the bug.
