After updating ibus-126.96.36.19910206-3.fc15, login window repeats in gdm
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login in gdm

Log file of GDM greeter
Since yesterday, I could use the graphical login anymore: even a correct password was rejected. After entering an alternate user name, I was not prompted for the password. Instead, I was dropped back to the initial login panel.
An ibus related backtrace appeared in :0-greeter.log (see attachment).
»»»» Downgrading to ibus-188.8.131.5210206-1.fc15 solved the problem. ««««
The critical event is: "IBUS-CRITICAL: _key_snooper_cb: assertion
`IBUS_IS_IM_CONTEXT (ibusimcontext)' failed"
Can you click on your user, enter password, and then click Login (as opposed to pressing return)? I think I am seeing the same bug, and this is how I was able to circumvent it for the time being.

Confirming the password using the mouse instead of the keyboard allows indeed to log in. Interestingly, merely hitting the tab-key to move the input focus away from the password field after entering the password resets the input dialog.
Oh, I forgot gdm changes g_return* to SEGV.
But I also understood the focus_out is called earlier than finalize.
I agree g_return* should be removed.
