popup after hitting the OK button or <enter>. Upon dismissing the popup. Login
proceeds normally, no password required.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set users to passwordless logins
2.Click a login face in the list
3.Click OK or hit <enter>
or if the choice of login is preselected, just click OK or <enter>
1-no error dialog
/etc/sysconfig/desktop contains DESKTOP="KDE"
Problem continues in Fedora Core 1
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
This machine won't boot ATM. I'll have to try to fix it when I have time and
then confirm this was fixed by FC4, which is on it now.
I can not replicate the problem in FC4 on the machine this was filed against, so
it must have been fixed somewhere along the way from FC1 to FC4.
Great, assuming fixed then.
