GDM Shield

Is it possible to get rid of the shield on the GDM login screen (even if 
it's a hidden option somewhere)? It's really annoying to have to drag it 
out of the way or hit a specific key on the keyboard to dismiss it. And 
considering the behavior of other operating systems, as well as the 
history of Linux software, I don't think it's unreasonable to desire the 
ability to get rid of it.

I've seen but I'm not 
sure if it's the same shield (also, no one seems to take an interest in 
working on that bug). Although I'd suggest that the issue also be 
handled in the general Gnome screensaver usage too, that at least 
doesn't affect me anymore since KDE does its own thing when it comes to
