Public bug report changed:
Youre right, seems it the face browser...
Never used a theme without it, sorry.
/etc/gdm/gdm.conf will not help.
gdm needs to be updated via gdmsetup
# You should not update this file by hand. Since GDM 126.96.36.199,
# configuration choices in the gdm.conf-custom file will override the
# default values specified in this file.
# If you hand-edit the GDM configuration, you should run the following
# command to get the GDM daemon to recognize the change. Any running
# GDM GUI programs will also be notified to update with the new
# gdmflexiserver --command="UPDATE_CONFIG <configuration key>"
I my eyes this is a very bad solution due to the fact it's a paradigm change being not allowed to edit conf files by hand and just restart the service.
And it's much to complicated...
