I know that, just didn't mention it. IMO, it's a usability bug if the
login manager isn't clever enough to fall back to the username.

As mentioned on test-list, keyboard input in X doesn't work for me at all.
Hence I cannot enter anything. Not in GNOME and not in XFCE either.
I *would* have tested the snapshot a bit, but so far I can't. The
GNOME Shell is strange, btw. The names below the various icons are
truncated with "...", and not even moving the mouse over them expands
