Adding to F15Alpha blocker list for review as an Alpha blocker per the following Alpha criteria:

    "When booting a system installed without a graphical environment, 
     or when using a correct configuration setting to cause an 
     installed system to boot in non-graphical mode, the system should
     boot to a state where it is possible to log in through at least 
     one of the default virtual consoles"

Confirmed and still present in gdm-2.91.6-5..

Workaround to a failed other login or login using your username and logout ( atleast that lists present users for me )

Per 2011-02-11 Alpha blocker meeting -
AGREED: 673921 - not accepted as a F15Alpha blocker. Reasonable workaround of typing in username exists

Seems to be the same bug as #672135.

gdm shows me no user name as I didn't enter a real name.
Comment 6 Hongqing Yang 2011-02-28 22:35:24 EST
reproduced on Fedora 15 Alpha RC2.
