Description Antonin 2015-09-28 07:14:47 EDT
Description of problem:
gdm logs to journal with wrong "SYSLOG_IDENTIFIER".
gdm identifies itself wrong with "gdm-password]" string.
There is added a "]" char to the end.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm.x86_64 1:3.16.3-1.fc22

How reproducible:
See journal log.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make gdm to write some message to journal -> lock Gnome desktop + enter wrong password
2. unlock desktop and enter this command:
      journalctl -t "gdm-password]"
      journalctl | grep gdm-password

Actual results:
čen 01 07:31:38 termix gdm-password][10554]: pam_unix(gdm-password:auth): conversation failed

Expected results:
čen 01 07:31:38 termix gdm-password[10554]: pam_unix(gdm-password:auth): conversation failed

Additional info:
Comment 1 Antonin 2016-07-02 03:26:21 EDT
Still remains in Fedora 24:

nuc:~$ journalctl -b | grep gdm-password

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 16:14:32 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Comment 3 Jan Kurik 2016-07-20 04:23:48 EDT
According to the reporter, this bug is still present in the latest Fedora.
So, reopening ....
Comment 4 Jan Kurik 2016-07-26 01:03:39 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
Comment 5 Antonin 2016-12-04 07:39:07 EST
Still remains in Fedora 25:

nuc:~$ journalctl -b | grep gdm-password
pro 04 13:08:24 nuc.home gdm-password][1270]: pam_unix(gdm-password:session):   session opened for user antonin by (uid=0)

There is badly added a "]" char to the end of syslog identifier (gdm-password).
Comment 6 Antonin 2017-08-07 04:42:53 EDT
Still remains in Fedora 26. (tested with gdm.x86_64 1:3.24.2-1.fc26)
