Description J Chapin 2009-02-18 18:40:02 EST
Description of problem:

Unable to logout. 

Clicking the "leave" button followed by "Logout" logs me out -- and then immediately logs me back in.

Booting the machine results in an immediate login, with no password prompt.

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

How reproducible:

100% of the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on machine. (or logout)
2. Watch.
Actual results:

Logged in with no prompt.

Expected results:

KDM or GDM prompt for username and password.

Are you using kdm or gdm?
Is this reproducible with a fresh/new user (one with an empty ~/.kde directory)?
Comment 2 J Chapin 2009-02-18 19:26:54 EST
No idea if it is reproducible with a fresh user -- since I am not prompted with a login option, I am unable to select a different user.

I am using kdm -- at least that is what I set it to, after the preupdate package installed gnome for some reason.
Comment 3 Steven M. Parrish 2009-03-16 21:50:35 EDT
Is this still an issue with the recent updates?
Comment 4 J Chapin 2009-03-17 04:21:32 EDT
Comment 5 Steven M. Parrish 2009-04-27 14:35:50 EDT
Do you have autologin enabled?
Comment 6 J Chapin 2009-04-27 14:48:45 EDT
I do not have access to that computer this week (other than ssh) so I cannot say for sure, but I should *not*, as it was not enabled by me, nor was it enabled prior to the upgrade from F8. If you know how to check from the CLI, I am willing to try and check.
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2009-05-21 08:50:59 EDT
When you boot the machine fresh, do you see a login window?  (If so, then autologin is not in effect).
Comment 8 Steven M. Parrish 2009-05-26 09:51:30 EDT
Reporter do you have the information requested in the previous comments?  If no response in 30 days will close this as INSUFFICIENT_DATA
Comment 9 J Chapin 2009-06-02 16:17:07 EDT
No, I do not see a prompt -- ever.
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2009-06-02 16:21:33 EDT
Must be autologin then.
Comment 11 J Chapin 2009-06-02 16:53:43 EDT
Fair enough. 

Do I need to open a new bug over the fact that I never enabled auto-login, but I am evidently auto-logging in, or can I just continue this one?
Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2009-06-02 17:05:11 EDT
autologin requires manual configuration (just like how fedora's live images work).

If you didn't configure it, and you're not booting live media, I have no explanation for what you're seeing.
Comment 13 Steven M. Parrish 2009-09-07 21:55:09 EDT
Closing this as NOTABUG
