Show users with UID < 1000 according to /etc/login.defs definition of minimum UID
|Ubuntu Desktop Bugs|
It would be nice with an option to show users with UIDs below 1000 in the face greeter. Since Max OS X starts their users at 501 I have a few Ubuntu machines set up with with UIDs starting at 501 (since that is needed for the NFS mounts to work nicely).
/etc/login.defs has a UID_MIN setting that is set to 1000 by default, and which is used by useradd and users-admin (at least) to define normal users (as opposed to system users). GDM should take this parameter into account when hiding system users. This way one could easily set this limit to be 500, and everything would integrate nicely.
