Comment 7 Orla Hegarty 2006-10-13 13:50:38 EDT
Testing candidate 20061006.2 I was about to re-open the bug due to one boundary
case not being taken care off. Then I checked my gm version.

$ rpm -qa | grep gdm

So not -15 perhaps my boundary case is taken care of in that version. So I am
going to hold off re-opening until I re-test with -15

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure smart card login to require smart cards
2. At the gdm login prompt after
2.a A Reboot or
2.b A logout from the previous session by removing the smart card
The UI presented is 

A text box with ... in it. Above the text box is Username. Below the text box is
Please insert your smart card. 

You cannot type in the box. Good 

However, Boundary case
3. Logout from the previous session with the card inserted
4. When the UI is presented to enter the pin for the named smart card, remove
the smart card

5. New UI is presented ....

A text box with nothing in it. Above the text box is, nothing, no text label
Below the text box is Please insert your smart card. 

You can type in the text box - not good.

Comment 18 Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-12-21 00:50:13 EST
I haven't been able to reproduce either.  Given that it's not readily
reproducible, this isn't really as severe as I thought it was.  I don't think
this should really be a blocker at this point.

(if it were readily reproducible, then customers would be much more likely to
hit it and it would be a much more severe problem).
