Description Jeff Bastian 2011-02-24 19:32:43 UTC
Description of problem:
While working on the Graphics Test Day (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2011-02-24_Intel) I noticed during the fast-user-switch test that I can hit CTRL-ALT-F1 and CTRL-ALT-F7 to bounce between my two users and their screens are NOT locked.

If I use the [user menu]->Switch User option, then it asks for the password when switching users, but it's pretty easy to circumvent this security check with CTRL-ALT-Fn.

Please fix this security bug.

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

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two users and login as one to Gnome Shell
2. Use [user menu]->Switch User to login as the other user
3. Hit CTRL-ALT-F1 to switch back to the first user
4. Hit CTRL-ALT-F7 to switch back to the second user
Actual results:
switch users with no password

Expected results:
screens are locked when you switch away

This sounds very similar to bug 680065, just triggered in a different way.  I'll mark this as a duplicate.
