I have gathered information on how to make Gnome's ask for usernames on , rather than showing a menu of "real names" to choose from.

1) Create file
/etc/dconf/profile/gdm with lines:

user-db:user
system-db:gdm
file-db:/usr/local/share/gdm/greeter-dconf-defaults

2) Create file /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/00-login-screen with lines:

[org/gnome/login-screen]
disable-user-list=true

3) Run 'dconf update'

4) Run '/etc/rc.d/gdm restart'

I don't understand the dconf magic, but works for me.
