Description Mike MacCana 2004-07-22 03:59:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Login and GDM do not have consistent behavior with each other. Login
doesn't tell users that their password has expired. GDM does.

This could be fixed with a simple warning for login when a users
password has expired simialar to what gdm does "your account has
expired, please contact your system administrator".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.12a-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in using login as a user with an expired password
2.Compare to gdm
  
Actual results:
Its not consistent. And not particularly helpful either.

Expected results:
Login should be consistent with gdm and tell the user of the problem
so that they indeed contact the system admin, rather than trying
aimlessly.

Additional info:
Red Hat's training currently involves getting users to solve problems
with expired passwords - the inconsistency between gdm and login
doesn't look great. If someone who knows C better than I do could fix
login, that's be great.

Thanks very much.

Mike
