Description kabir 1998-12-22 16:03:25 UTC
I have found the following bug with xlockmore.
When you are in user mode and you type an incorrect
password it will return you to your
previous  X-Windows session.

But when in root mode this problem does not exist.

Unable to replicate problem in test lab.  Machine remained locked
unless I entered correct password for user that locked terminal, or
entered the correct root password.
