Description Martin Poole 2010-07-28 13:25:06 EDT
Description of problem:

faillog executes options as they are parsed rather than once they have all been gathered

Thus

  faillog -r -u 1234

will reset the fail counter for all users rather than just the named user, whereas

  faillog -u 1234 -r

will reset for just the one user.

Upstream code has rework the code to put the execution of function after the parsing of arguments has completed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
