MATE on gdm

hi guix,

i'm trying to build this attached system config with both gnome desktop and mate desktop(i changed nothing except where are gnome to mate). At the end I get this error:
To complete the upgrade, run 'herd restart SERVICE' to stop,
upgrade, and restart each service that was not automatically restarted.
shepherd: Evaluating user _expression_ (let* ((services (map primitive-load (?))) # ?) ?).
guix system: error: exception caught while executing 'start' on service 'user-homes':
Throw to key `match-error' with args `("match" "no matching pattern" "#<<user-account> name: \"root\" password: \"\" uid: 0 group: \"root\" supplementary-groups: () comment: \"System administrator\" home-directory: #<procedure home-directory (x)> create-home-directory?: #t shell: \"/gnu/store/qn1ax1fkj16x280m1rv7mcimfmn9l2pf-bash-4.4.23/bin/bash\" system?: #f>")'.
bootloader successfully installed on '/dev/sda'
but i continue with "guix system reconfigure"
gnome boot without problem but for  mate  when i try to enter password in the gdm interface i redirected to this interface(see attached picture) i can't then do anything (keyboard doesn't listen).

the reason i attempt to build both gnome and mate is that i have finished to update mate  desktop to 1.22 and i was thinking that it is a bug due to my change so i used the version 1.8 wich is the current
and i get the same result .

i think that:
* my config is wrong see above error(but gnome work).
* or the recent use of gdm doesn't yet be tested for mate(someone to test?)

sorry for my bad English! 

Please help!
