Description Pete Zaitcev 2008-07-27 11:36:20 EDT
Description of problem:

Running su takes a long time before it works.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "su"
2. Enter password

Actual results:

A long wait

Expected results:

Instantaneous shell prompt

Additional info:

su from root to root is quick, so I cannot use strace to find where
it hangs. However, by attaching strace while it hangs, I found that
it hangs reading from a pipe at descriptor 6.

Seems to work now. I did a general "yum update", coreutils remainded
at 6.12-7.fc10. Must have been a library.
