Unable to enable auto-login through User Accounts

Bug Description

Linux Mint 13, 64bit, Cinnamon.

When I go into User Accounts and set my account (the only one in the system) to Auto-Login, the software shows that it is enabled. However, upon reboot, I still get the login screen. After I login and go back to User Accounts, it still shows that I have auto-login enabled.

I've tried logging in and enabling it, logging in disabling then re-enabling it, every combination I can think of... the system just won't let me auto-login.

I've reinstalled the OS several times and if I have auto-login set to enabled when I'm doing the initial install, then auto-login works. But if you don't enable auto-login during the initial install... then it just won't enable no matter what I do.

I think this is part of a bigger issue according so some of the chatter in xChat. But... I can't confirm anything else other than the system falsely reporting the status of Auto-Login.

I have solved this issue by checking the Enable Automatic Login (in settings->login screen -> security tab)
