Disabling login screen on Xserver respawns

I already have my system booting directly into the Xserver without requiring a login. What I did was modify /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf and set:

However, the problem I have is that if the Xserver is killed and then respawns I suddenly end up with a login screen. It appears that initial boot up takes a different route than a respawn and for some reason a respawn ignore the AutomaticLoginEnable that is set in the gdm.conf. For instance, say I cold boot the machine and it goes directly into X (no login). Then I hit ctlr+alt+bkspc to restart the Xserver, now suddenly a login screen comes up. How do I disable that login screen?
If it matters, I have CentOS 4.7. Thanks!
