Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 819451
GDM stopped showing Photo after update and asks to manually enter username and password

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
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:
Manually enter username/password
Display Photo next to user like before
Thinkpad laptops with AMD Radeon and Intel HD video cards
This was caused by an accountservice update that never made it out of updates-testing.
You should use yum downgrade to go back to accountsservice-0.6.18-1.fc17
Or, once 0.6.20-1 has been unpushed and the mirrors have caught up, 'yum distro-sync' should do it.
