wrong passwd blocks authentication

Description of problem:
If one puts in the wrong password then it is not possible
to get authenticated with the correct password until pressing Cancel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1. log desktop
2. type in wrong password
3. type in right password
3. password rejected

to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present. Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.
Setting status to CANTFIX, however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
Core release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.
Thank you in advance.
