Description Richard Gill 2004-08-11 10:57:56 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/125.2 (KHTML, 
like Gecko) Safari/125.8

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):

How reproducible:

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 
your password

Expected Results:  you should have been asked for your password

Additional info:

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.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
