There is much worse - it does not let you set the keyboard layour
anymore, so anyone in a non-qwerty locale will have a lot of problem
inputting his login (sometimes it won't be possible at all, since qwerty
does not give access to a lot of letters)

It's a bug. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=555593 is the
earliest report I can find.

With qwerty many letters have no one-key equivalent; but does the
<compose> key work? <compose> allows entering any byte by entering
its numeric value.

This isn't really a workable solution for password entry.

Does not matter. Someone who has direct access to a letter on his normal
keyboard layout is very unlikely to know a compose sequence for it (let
alone a compose sequence on an unfamiliar layout)

A week or two ago I tried just poking at gconf settings for the gdm
user, which I believe worked only for one reboot.

Seems to be back in the latest update (my rawhide systems automatically
upgrade and reboot daily), however the icons adjoining the user list
aren't there - just the user name is given. I suspect the face browser
isn't enabled but haven't looked any further than noticing gdm.

Jon.
