Description of problem:
If you log in with the graphical greeter, you may click on your face. Your user name
appears in the dialogue box together with the message "Doubleclick on the user to log in".
However with one double-click on user your username disappears and you are thrown
back to the earlier stage where you still must choose your name. A second double-click on
your face at last brings you to the stage where you can enter your password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure gdm to use graphical greeter
2. attempt to login by clicking on your face
(see message "Double click on the user to log in)
3. double click on your face
Actual Results: nothing. you have to double click yet again in order to be asked to enter
Expected Results: you should have been asked for your password
This bug is extremely annoying for first time linux users. The very first graphical
user interface they meet, behaves in an illogical and clumsy way.
