proposing as blocker so we can take the fix for final, this is pretty serious - NTH at least. halfline knows what the issue is and has a fix pending.

Add some CCs for blocker votes.
Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2011-10-24 20:02:01 EDT
We should fix at least this one *or* the other bug: if you have a fingerprint enrolled, then if you try to log in with the fingerprint you hit this bug, and if you try to log in with a password you hit another bug. You can't log in either way. The update fixes both bugs, so we should just take that and be happy...
