gconf key no longer disables face browser

Instead, we get to speak DBus::

dbus-send --system --dest=org.gnome.DisplayManager /org/gnome/DisplayManager/Settings org.gnome.DisplayManager.Settings.SetFaceBrowserEnabled boolean:false

I'm not sure what the best way to do this is, since dbus might not be running when the package is configured?

The one upside to this is that the login screen with the face browser disabled is a lot less stupid, in that the username prompt is just there (as opposed to forcing the user to click "Log In" first.

Evan notes that this just sets the key we already set (/apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list) to the negated value of what's passed. But still, I can't convince it to work on my Natty machine unless I go this route (which is what 'gdmsetup' does), so *shrug*

And now I can't repro this problem, so *shrug*. I'll try again on a clean natty machine.

I can't repro this on a clean machine.
