Description Joachim Frieben 2002-05-14 03:31:24 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
In "Red Hat Linux 7.3", a significant number of new system accounts has been
added. The "Exclude" entry in the "[greeter]" section of "gdm.conf" has not been
updated accordingly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable "gdm" face browser
2. Logout from "X" session

Actual Results:  A huge number of system users appear in the "gdm" login panel.

Expected Results:  Only ordinary users and root should be shown.

Additional info:

After appending "ftp, games, gopher, ident, nfsnobody, ntp, pcap, rpc, rpcuser,
rpm, vcsa" to the "Exclude" entry, things behaved as they used to do in the past.

I have a patch for this that will just use the MinimalUID setting instead, to make all 
accounts 0 < uid < 500 disappear.
