Description John Horne 2005-01-13 09:09:04 EST
Description of problem:
Created a non-user account during the installation process. Once FC3
fully installed and rebooted then created another account using
'useradd' command. The .bash_logout file is different in each account.

The installation account .bash_logout file has the size of 24 bytes,
as does the root account one. The account created by useradd uses the
.bash_logout in /etc/skel, and this has a size of 302 bytes since it
includes gpm code.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC3 and create a non-user account when prompted.
2.After installation and reboot, create another account.
3.If you have FC3 already installed then just create an account with
useradd and compare the .bash_logout to the one in the root account.
Actual results:
Files are of different sizes.

Expected results:
Same file should exist in all accounts.

The /etc/skel/.bash_logout file was altered in an update.
