Description of problem:

Up until a few days ago, I had setup my home laptop's GDM to display my beautiful wife's photo and my fat face in the GDM prompt. After I ran an update, it asks for manually entering username and password everytime at GDM prompt. Seeing similar behavior on my office laptop after updates. 

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

Fedora 17 x86_64 latest updates, GNOME 3.4.x

How reproducible:

Upload Photo for your profile and observe that Photo does not show up at GDM prompt. Seeing the Photo everywhere else - for ex at top right corner drop down menu when powering off

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Manually enter username/password

Expected results:

Display Photo next to user like before

This was caused by an accountservice update that never made it out of updates-testing.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2012-05-07 14:04:06 EDT
You should use yum downgrade to go back to accountsservice-0.6.18-1.fc17
Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2012-05-07 15:36:44 EDT
Or, once 0.6.20-1 has been unpushed and the mirrors have caught up, 'yum distro-sync' should do it.
