Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

Maverick beta: I added a new user with the full name "Bokföring & Administration", and a user/login of "bank". When logging in, both my original user "david"/"David Henningsson" and the "bank" user show up with the user name "David Henningsson".

In the session indicator and in "users and groups", the full name "Bokföring & Administration" is correctly shown, it is only in gdm that the user name is wrong.
