GDM fails to allow password field selection after changing focus
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:25:12 EST
Description of problem:
GDM logon screen fails to allow password field selection after changing focus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6.0 Beta 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. After booting to GUI logon screen, select a userid to login as (do not enter password).
2. Select Universal Access Preferences or Boot Messages icons.
3. Select Close option.
4. Try to select Password field or logon box, and focus will not change.
At step 4 the only working option is to Cancel the login request.
Focus should change to the logon box and allow password to be entered.
If Language or Country options are selected and then closed out of, this bug doesn't occur. Those boxes must handle things differently (correct).
