[Bug 66000] Random themed gdm bug

Public bug reported:
I added a few gdm login themes and selected the option to randomly
choose one of them each startup.
The next time I reboot, gdm gives error messages summarized as "can't
load the themed login screen; using the plain gdm login screen instead".
No big deal, a login theme might be corrupted or non-existing. But after
that the plain gdm login screen shows a "username" field/editbox in
which I can't type!
The mouse works, so I clicked in the field, but no cursor is shown (so
it is not that the keyboard-driver doesn't get loaded properly).
I fixed the problem non-graphically (in /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom) by
setting the "GraphicalThemeRand" in the "[greeter]" back to false. It
however seems to be a bug...
** Affects: gdm (Ubuntu)
