Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443405
GUI: Invalid message when using non-existing user account

There was an error while logging in.
This error shouldn't have happened. If you'd like to help us improve this
program, please file a bug at
bugzilla.redhat.com. Including the relevant parts of '/var/log/up2date' would be
very helpful. Thanks!

It seems to be fixed in 5.2. I could see same error "The username and/or password you entered does not correspond to a valid RHN account. Please verify the username and password and try again." in gui window even when I put invalid username.
