Description Matthias Clasen 2007-04-02 23:46:33 EDT
here is a problematic user-switching scenario

1) from session 1, create session 2
2) from session 2, create session 3
3) now switch back to session 2, and log out
4) the X server switches back to the vt from which it was started, session 1
5) switch to session 3, and log out
6) the X server switches back to the vt from which it was started
7) you are now on the unallocated vt that was used by session 2

The ancient "X switches back to originating vt on exit" approach to 
vt switching does not quite work in the modern user-switching world.
It would probably be good if C-K would ensure that we don't end up
on an unallocated vt, since it is already tracking the vt-session

But some of the speculation in that report is probably a bit out of date...
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 19:55:04 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
