So i looked into this this evening, and it seems a lot more dire than comment 0.  I don't know if that's because gdm has been rev'd since that comment or if it's just a timing issue, but on my laptop timed login doesn't seem to work at all after cancel. It gets into a sort of deranged state where you can do anything anymore.

There were a few bugs that together made this happen.  I've corrected them and it should be better in gdm-2.30.4-7.el6.

marking MODIFIED and moving from exception to blocker given how much more serious the bug seems to be than I originally thought.

Tested and Verified on gdm-2.30.4-21.el6.x86_64, problem seems to be no longer present.
