Description sdh4 1999-07-04 17:08:37 EDT
If one switches the default console to xdm from gdm
under redhat 6.0, the pam-console logout actions are
not triggered properly and the ownership of /dev/dsp,
/dev/cdrom, etc. get stuck with the first user to
log in after a reboot.

When that user logs out the following message is generated
in /var/log/secure:
Jul  4 12:57:28 myhost pam_console[786]: Could not open lock
file /var/lock/console/sdh4, disallowing console access

then on the next attempted login:
Jul  4 12:57:58 myhost pam_console[872]: console file lock
already in place /var/lock/console.lock
