Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1001636
[Account] Add locking mechanism
Last modified: 2015-03-03 18:06:58 EST
reopening - I will take a look on this anyway. Seems the problem is in libuser - it is not able to handle more requests in short time.
"backup file size mismatch" is message from lu_files_create_backup() in libuser. I think it is used to create temp backup file of /etc/passwd (or other modified file). I think it is due to handling too much requests in short time.
This is locking issue - Will implement some (basic) locking.

This has been partialy fixed in AccountProvider (only in little part of code).
But still there will be troubles with locking and race conditions.
Should I made this pass?
