Picture for root in GDM face browser?

Is there a simple way to make the ROOT account show up in GDM face browser? Cause it just doesn't, try as I might.

Editing /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf ->


didn't do me no good, and I have this really cool picture I want to use ;-)

Maybe this one's disabled from the source code? Though I have no idea what good it would do, since not being able to put up a picture in the face browser doesn't make you less able to log on...

Did I miss something obvious?

Thanks :-)
