Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1249683
Duplicate GUI session, after locking, unlocking and trying to log in
Last modified: 2016-07-19 15:54:35 EDT
Description of problem:
After you lock your screen, while having multiple workspaces in use. Then log back into the same account, all the windows are gone, as if a new session was started. All the previously open programs are still running, but their windows can't be accessed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sometimes with multiple workspaces.
Not sure if I managed to reproduce it without using multiple workspaces.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch a lot of applications, (Browser, terminals, documents), use at least 2 workspaces.
2. Lock your desktop, log back in with the same user.
All your windows are gone, the applications are still running (processes).
All your windows are there where you left them.
An interesting detail is, that if you also lock this new session, then try to shut off the computer from the lock screen, it displays a warning, saying that Multiple users are logged into the computer and lists them as 2 distinct users:
