[gdm-list] GDM Custom Widgetry


I have been using GDM custom widgetry as documented in your web documentation 
located at the following URL:


It was working fine in earlier versions of gdm but when I upgraded to gdm 2.20 
then it stopped working.  The following error messages appeared in the system 
log files:

Feb 21 17:56:39 pippin gdmgreeter[6969]: GLib-CRITICAL: g_key_file_to_data: 
assertion `key_file != NULL' failed
Feb 21 17:56:39 pippin gdmgreeter[6969]: GLib-CRITICAL: g_file_set_contents: 
assertion `contents != NULL || length == 0' failed
Feb 21 17:56:39 pippin gdmgreeter[6969]: GLib-CRITICAL: 
g_key_file_free:assertion `key_file != NULL' failed

I looked at the source code and it looks like the format for the output file 
(<ServAuthDir><display>.GreeterInfo) has changed to .ini-like config file.  I 
added a group header to the output file and the error messages in the log 
file went away but the value of the variable value pair does not change when 
new items are selected.  Presumably this is because I have not specified the 
proper group name.  What I would like to know is how to specify the group 
name under this new methodology?  If I can get this information I would be 
glad to update the documentation and submit it to the documentation people so 
that other users will not be puzzled by this change.
