User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041002
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Login as a user with at least one lower-case character in your password
1. Go to top panel
2. Select Actions->Lock Screen
3. Ensure you have Caps Lock on
4. Try typing your password
Actual Results: Password entry fails, no apparent reason why; it
merely says "Sorry!"; a non-expert computer user will have to get help
from a techie before they can get back into their computer.
Expected Results: There should either be some kind of visual cue to
warn you that you have Caps Lock on, or there should be a better error
message, with a suggestion to check the Caps Lock status
Fixed in 4.21: if there is a password failure, and caps-lock is on,
instead of printing "Sorry!" it prints "CapsLock?"
Great, thanks. Closing...
