Description of problem:
If you set disable_user_list for the simple-greeter (via, say, gconftool-2), then it becomes impossible to login.  There is a thin vertical bar with no way to enter a username and password.  This is in RHEL 6 Beta 2 (it worked properly in Beta 1).

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

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. su -
2. su -s /bin/sh gdm

4. logout
Actual results:
A thin vertical bar with no capability of logging in.

A box to enter a username.
