The way I was testing it was by running it in a VM.  This made testing
any little idea take way too long.  It would be nice to have a faster
way of testing it.  If anyone has any experience running a nested
instance of GDM, being able to do that would be a big help.  (The trade
off is that figuring that out might be just as hard as fixing GDM in the
first place.)

Other than that, I agree that this is a critical feature.  GNOME needs
GDM to work smoothly, and GNOME is pretty important for wider adoption.
I am happy to take another look at this (eventually!), but I do not have
any particular expertise here, so if anyone else is feeling brave, they
would have just as good a chance at fixing it as me.  :)
