Description Jules Colding 2003-12-06 07:19:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031114 Description of problem: Launch up2date as non-root. While it is querying for the root password try to: 1) Launch the fedora (aka the foot menu) menu 2) or try to type something in a gnome-termnal 3) or try to type something in an emacs buffer It is simply not possible to launch the main menu or type anything except in the password query window itself. It should be noted that this are only true when being in the same workspace as the query window. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): up2date-4.1.16-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch up2date as non-rrot 2. Try to press the fedora menu or 3. Try to input something in another program Additional info:

the root password dialog is part of the "usermode" program, and not up2date itself, reassigning to the "usermode" component.
Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2005-05-19 14:10:56 UTC
I can't reproduce this with usermode-1.80-1 any more.
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2005-05-19 14:40:04 UTC
I ran debug version of usermode where this feature is disabled. This really happens even with rawhide usermode.
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2005-05-19 14:48:33 UTC
On the other hand, this behavior is intentional in order to not to give user a chance to type password in a visible form to some other window if he accidentially change focus. I'll set the password window always on top in order to not to let the user be confused if he switches to another window what covers the password dialog and anything he types goes to password query window actually.

Closing bugs in MODIFIED state from prior Fedora releases. If this bug persists in a current Fedora release (such as Fedora Core 5 or later), please reopen and set the version appropriately.
