I vaguely recollect that FedoraInfinity gdm greeter used getent passwd
to generate the list of users...have you been editing /etc/passwd by
hand? Any problems running 'getent passwd' ?

That's all I could think of...I use kdm

But considering that gdm-greeter and FedoraInfinity is default on a new
install, if there was a problem, it would certainly be in bugzilla...did
you check?
