Okey dokey, here's what I've learned.
Just removing the comments here are not enough:
The user name must actually be set to the true username, eg: lance - no real surprise thereCode:[daemon] # Enabling automatic login # AutomaticLoginEnable = true # AutomaticLogin = user1
Regarding the log-out issue I'm also wrong. Once auto-login is set, whether manually by editing "/etc/gdm/custom.conf" or during installation, then log-out does NOT work.
But if you install Ubuntu GNOME Remix w/o choosing auto-login the the log-out option works just fine.
Does this make sense
About reporting a bug. I have a Launchpad account, but no Bugzilla account, so I'd appreciate some help
I'm just a tired, old tester that ain't quite ready to hang up his cyber-spurs yet
Purely as a usability work-around I installed lightdm by installing the package 'lightdm-gtk-greeter'. Then I purged the ppa packages so I'm back to using only native packages with the proposed repo activated.
Now that I'm using lightdm auto-login selection using gnome-control-center works fine, and log out works fine whether auto-login is set to yes or no.
So tista is clearly correct about gdm being buggy
Edit: I just thought to add, the reason I mentioned specifically installing 'lightdm-gtk-greeter' is because if you try to just install 'lightdm' it wants to install the unity greeter and a lot of other unneeded pkgs like compiz.

I'm testing the latest gdm from Ricotz staging (along with all other packages in Ricotz testing & staging and the Gnome 3 PPA) and the issue about gdm not following the settings applied in System Settings appears to be fixed
But the log out issue still exists if auto-login is selected. And I got an automated crash report this time:
I'll follow up more later.
