Description sudhir veluguri 2006-04-13 11:58:07 EDT
Description of problem:
From the Xsession, if switch-user is invoked or if a switch to console mode is
made, the original X session is lost. A new X Session greets when we go back.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora Core 5
2.6.15-2054 Smp

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to X session 
2. Switch to console mode {<ctrl>+<alt>+F[1-6]}
3. revert back to original session {<alt>+F7}
Actual results:
The login screen is displayed. The logged in session is lost.

Expected results:
Get back to the previous X session from where the switch was invoked

Additional info:
Machine is Dell OptiPlex GX270

The same thing happens when Switch User is invoked from a running X Session. A
new login screen is displayed but there is no way to get back the previous one.

Attach the X server log from a failed X session, as well as the X server config
file you're using, as individual uncompressed file attachments using the link

Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2007-07-03 09:52:31 EDT
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, please, could you reproduce this bug with
the updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report.  If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX/INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-03 09:32:26 EDT
