Description Roland Pallai 2007-09-28 12:38:29 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm using FUS with 2 KDE sessions, and when I try to switch between X servers
with "K menu / Switch user", the new passive session tries to "log in" again and
again and fills up my /var/log/messages log with alerts:

Sep 28 17:54:52 dh kcheckpass[14257]: Authentication failure for dap (invoked by
uid 500)
Sep 28 17:54:53 dh kcheckpass[14259]: Authentication failure for dap (invoked by
uid 500)
Sep 28 17:54:55 dh kcheckpass[14266]: Authentication failure for dap (invoked by
uid 500)

uid 500)
Sep 28 17:55:01 dh kcheckpass[14279]: Authentication failure for dap (invoked by
uid 500)

it's consumes a constant CPU time too, about 50%. no such problem if I switch
with alt+ctrl+f* or when I first lock my screen (K menu / Lock screen) and I
switch later with the "Switch User..." button

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
start 2 X sessions, log in with 2 users and switch between them with "K / Switch
user" and watch /var/log/messages

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
I'm using USB keyboard & mouse and NVIDIA graphics card, I have no xorg.conf
Comment 1 Roland Pallai 2007-09-28 12:50:25 EDT
I've noticed something: no problem if I use the mouse to click the name of the
another session, but there's a bug if I do the same with the keyboard! (alt+f1 +
2* up + right + choose another session, enter)

I'm using the freshest f7.
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 10:33:03 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2008-06-16 22:31:15 EDT
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008. 
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not 
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we 
are closing this bug. 

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version 
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
