I had this problem upgrading from F12 to F13 using Gnome 

I found it was due to me hiding logon names, I was using:-

Don't show login names assuming your using GDM:-

gconftool-2 --direct --config-source
xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults --type bool
--set /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list true 

re running the above setting it to "false" solved the logon
albeit showing the users names.
