gdm probs, missing user

A while back one of my users names just quit showing up in the gdm login. She can still log in but it bothers her that her name isn't there any more to can I re-add her name?

I looked at the standard greeter under FC3.

It looks like it simply polls the passwd file and removed root and other system accounts from the chooser option.

I seem to remember a richer version at some point though in FC line. Which had options for user pictures and other assortment of things. That does not seem to be the vanilla version I have.

Worse case scenario, remove and re-add her account (copying files to a temporary location of course). See if that does the trick.
