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