reason: Process /usr/libexec/gnome-screensaver-dialog was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
release: Fedora release 15 (Rawhide)
The I type my password in the screensaver lock password dialog i get 'incorect password'.
I selected the 'Switch User' button and selected my already logged in user and type my password an get in but this crash occoured
How to reproduce
1. boot into Fedora 15 Alpha TC2
3. Click on username on top bar and select 'Lock Screen'
Created attachment 479055 [details]
First i thought there it was because there was a '&' in my password so i tried
to change it.
I tried by clicking Username on the top bar and select 'My Account' and click on the password button to get the password change dialog. But I was not able to change it, because it did not except my old password.
I tried to use 'passwd' in a console and it would not accept my password either.
I tried using 'system-config-users' an was able to set a new password.
Now the lock screen password dialog was working again with my new password :)
I change the password to a new one with an '&' in it (Using the change password dialog in My account).
The lock screen password was still working.
I changed my password back to the original one and the lock screen password is still working.
So I cant reproduce it any more, it looks like my initial user creation with 'system-config-users' because kickstart is not working in F15 Alpha TC2 and I had to boot in init 3 and login with root, do a startx and launch 'system-config-users' and create my user rebooted and logon. Had broken the password for the user in some ways.
Feel free to close this report if like and it dont show any issues in the code.
