Bug Description

The configuration file 'users.conf' has a section named [UserAccounts]. There are 3 keys listed under this section.

The source code file 'user.c' interfaces with this configuration file. The source code defines a function "load_passwd_file". This function reads the 3 keys in the file 'users.conf'. However, the function looks for a section named [UserList]. As a result, the 3 keys are not honored.

I added a section to the file 'users.conf'. I duplicated the 3 keys and named the section [UserList] as expected. The keys are now honored and the user list is filtered accordingly.

I am using lightdm version 1.4.0 on a 32-bit Arch linux installation with xfce and the lightdm-gtk-greeter. lightdm (and the greeter) was sucessfully compiled from source and installed on Oct 18 2012.

Thank you for your efforts on lightdm. It works well for me.
