Try downloading and reinstalling the previous gdm, which is gdm-2.20.1-7.fc8

gdm-2.20.2-2.fc8 has re-created this bug:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=379511

It's not exactly the same as what you report, but perhaps it's related.
Therefore, if you downgrade back to gdm-2.20.1-7.fc8 and it works again, you
might want to add a note about it to the above bug report.

Ok, this problem is now solved. It involved the use of ISPConfig and
ISPConfig encountered a fedora[7/8] GDM bug that caused "fast-switcher-?"
to run at 100% CPU speed and it blocked Gnome's Login screen, according
to this thread for those who are interested. The temporary fix is to
use KDE's login screen.
