have to select user twice after rejecting timed login in gdm
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:25:49 EST
Description of problem:
after rejecting timed login in gdm I have to select user twice as after first attempt gdm goes back into user selection list
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.enable timed login in custom.conf set time to approx 10 second to be able to reject it
2.go into gdm and reject timed login
back in user selection list
password text field should be prompted
So i looked into this this evening, and it seems a lot more dire than comment 0. I don't know if that's because gdm has been rev'd since that comment or if it's just a timing issue, but on my laptop timed login doesn't seem to work at all after cancel. It gets into a sort of deranged state where you can do anything anymore.
There were a few bugs that together made this happen. I've corrected them and it should be better in gdm-2.30.4-7.el6.
marking MODIFIED and moving from exception to blocker given how much more serious the bug seems to be than I originally thought.
Tested and Verified on gdm-2.30.4-21.el6.x86_64, problem seems to be no longer present.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
