Description Stéphane Acounis 2015-12-14 09:07:35 EST
Description of problem:
The last value of the HideShells token of /etc/sddm.conf is not correctly interpreted after last update os sddm package

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

How reproducible:
My UID is 216 (don't ask why) and I want to ignore all users with shells /sbin/nologin and /bin/false so I have this entry in the /etc/sddm.conf file:
When I reboot the machine (or disconnect) I can see every users with UID > 216.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a user with UID=216
2. Put HideShells=/bin/false,/sbin/nologin in /etc/sddm.conf
3. Reboot

Actual results:
All users with UID>216 are shwon

Expected results:
Only me (UID=216) and users with a valid login shell should be displayed

Additional info:
Another way to trigger the bug is to create a /etc/sddm.conf from scratch with "sddm --example-config > /etc/sddm.conf", modify it with the "HideShells=/bin/false,/sbin/nologin" line and restart sddm.
The next "sddm --example-config" shuld display garbage at line HideShells=xxx like this:
HideShells=/sbin/nologin,1,ഄ缼 0
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 09:13:39 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 12:00:02 EST
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
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.
