Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-02-20 19:18:33 EST
Description of Problem:

On a password setup screen if "Passwords do not match" shows up and
one will hit "Next" button anyway (easy to do by a mistake) the whole
anaconda blows up without giving a chance for corrections
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-02-20 19:37:48 EST
Do you get a traceback?  I can't reproduce here (clicking on the insensitive
next button correctly does nothing)
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2002-02-21 01:08:29 EST
No, I do not have a traceback.  The thing was instantly rebooting and the
machine on which this was happening consistently is not here.  I will try
to do some careful catch in a day or two if you cannot reproduce.
Comment 3 Michal Jaegermann 2002-02-21 19:43:08 EST
Ok, here is a traceback (attached).  Of course when I am trying to reproduce
it is not that easy as opposed to a normal installation when it was happening
every time I hit a wrong key.  I am not sure what one has type precisely
for this to happen but "goofing around" on a password screen for a while
surely triggered it again.
