[gdm-list] Reloading custom.conf settings without killing sessions

Is there a way to immediately reload custom.conf settings (to enable timed login) without disconnecting active Gnome sessions? Our system is a terminal server with many concurrent users, and we run GDM 2.14.8 on Fedora Core 5.

Reading the man page, gdm-safe-restart waits until all users are logged out. Then, gdm-restart works immediately but is "unsafe." Can't I have it all? :) I don't understand the details of the system, but it seems like it shouldn't be difficult.

IIRC, in the past I've tried 'killall -s SIGHUP gdm' (or something like that), and it disconnected everyone.
