Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 495565
switch user terminates current session
Last modified: 2018-04-11 06:18:52 EDT
Description of problem:
After switching to another user I am unable to return to the original session as it has been killed. I have to login again from the GDM login window.
This is on a Dell Latitude D820. Smolt hw info:
I am running without an xorg.conf.
Possibly related to #495562 ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mostly it happens on the first switch, but sometimes I have to do it twice to make the original session disappear.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Switch User (from a locked screen or from the user switch applet).
2. Notice how the session is marked at already being logged in at the GDM login window.
3. Log in as another user, and then logout.
4. The first user is now no longer logged in.
The first user loses his session.
Should be able to have many users logged in at the same time, and switch between them.
