Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 497305
Suspend to RAM logs out user
Last modified: 2009-05-10 17:20:15 EDT
Description of problem:
I use suspend to ram very often. Sometimes, I wake up the laptop and find myself logged out (it resumes on gdm screen). This does not depend on how much time I let the laptop in suspend mode, it's approximately 50% of time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Suspend to ram and wake up several times
Does X crash on resume in the logged out case?
No, there's no X crash involved. Instead of seeing gnome screensaver's login window, I wake up on gdm. Like if gnome-session crashed at wakeup... Maybe it's a gnome-session bug then ?

strace of gnome-session while suspending to ram and resuming
I did an strace on gnome session when that behaviour happened... We can see a "Fatal IO error", trace is attached. I therefore think it's a gnome-session bug...
I've failed to reproduce this so far, suspending multiple times in a row.
I'm getting this as well, and it's REALLY obnoxious. If there's any other troubleshooting steps or log output that'd be helpful, I'd be happy to provide.
Update: I am no longer experiencing this problem - it's been fixed for at least a week or so with one of the updates that's come through rawhide.
Okay, please re-open if it re-appears. Thanks.
