Description bitmumbler 2015-10-01 17:14:12 EDT
How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to GNOME 3.
2. Lock screen.
3. Hit right mouse button, as one frequently does if carrying an open laptop. May have to hit it twice if screen is off.
4. Screen goes black.
5. Login prompt appears as if logging in to GDM (not unlock screen).
6. Don't pay close enough attention to notice this isn't the unlock screen.
7. Type password.
8. A new GNOME 3 session starts.
9. Ask where all my windows went.
10. Realize what happened.
11. Curse.
12. Log out.
13. Hit control-alt-f2. Unlock screen appears.
14. Enter password.
15. Realize all the session daemons (gnome-keyring, sometimes network manager or pulse) were replaced and no longer work.

Actual results:

Two login sessions, one that works but has no windows and one that has all my applications open but no longer functions properly.

Expected results:

See unlock screen (or nothing).

GNOME 3 no longer uses gnome-screensaver for screen locking.  Reassigning.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 14:05:24 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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
