system hangs if executing 'poweroff' with 'enter' key held down
Last modified: 2008-03-11 12:59:57 EDT
Description of problem:
system hangs if I execute 'poweroff' while hold 'enter' key down.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login as normal user(I haven't tried root).
2. do any(or nothing) operations.
3. type 'poweroff' in console or terminal, press enter, hold the 'enter' key down.
4. system hangs.
I have to hard reset my laptop. :(
poweroff should act normal.
If I do not hold the 'enter' key, system will poweroff normally.
I was unable to replicate this bug. I tried it as normal user on FC5 with same
usermode package. I tried it in both xterm and console. In every case it worked
- can you try it as root by running /sbin/poweroff to make sure that problem is
in usermode and not in poweroff itself?
- can you provide more precise info about how long you hold <Enter> key or some
other special circumstances?
