Description Boricua 2008-04-27 11:09:11 EDT
Description of problem:
This machine has 4 users and is running Fedora 9 Preview. The first time you log
in each user they are shown in the applet from the user's desktop you are
currently in. When you then try to cycle among the other logged users the names
are already vanished from the applet.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time you log into each user and then try to switch back orf cycle among them.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in as one user.
2.Log in as a second or subsequent user.
3.Tap the applet to switch back to already login users.
Actual results:
The already logged users are no longer available in the applet.

Expected results:
All already logged users should appear, allowing to switch.

That's weird, it works for me.. but I only have two users. I'll try adding some more and see what happens.
Comment 2 Will Woods 2008-04-27 18:36:21 EDT
Ah, I misunderstood the report. Here's how I reproduced the problem:

1) Log in as groucho
2) Use the applet and switch to harpo
2a) Use the applet to switch to chico
3) Use the applet and switch back to groucho

Once you're back to groucho, the applet shows no other users. Hitting "other" and attempting to switch to 
chico, I log in successfully and get... groucho's desktop again. (Think that's bug 443050).
Comment 3 Boricua 2008-04-27 19:33:30 EDT
I think you got it right Will. Sorry if my explanation was not good enough the
first time. I am configuring a new machine running Fedora 9 Preview for my
brother and his three kids and that's why I hit this bug. This will be their
only computer so the fast user switch must work flawlessly for them. As I said
before, it appears to work once and then fails. I also checked bug 443050 and it
certainly looks similar to what I have reported.

I've committed a fix for this upstream.  Should be fixed in the next snapshot.

Comment 6 Will Woods 2008-04-29 01:19:51 EDT
Confirmed fixed for me, using the new gdm package Matthias mentioned. You can get it here:
or wait a day or two for it to land in rawhide.
