Description Nick Mumbach 2002-08-24 14:56:48 EDT
Description of Problem: On my desktop computer, if I login to Limbo as root, 
then go to the KDE control panel, KUSR utility, and change a user's password, 
THAT user's password is successfully changed.  All other passwords are TRASHED, 
including root.  (When I repeated this on my laptop as a test, it also trashed 
the sound support until the system is rebooted.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): limbo (7.3.93) 
and the KDE supplied therewith.

How Reproducible: Seems to be every time, although since it requires re-
installing the entire OS, I have only tried twice (on 2 different computers)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot limbo (7.3.93)
2. log in as root, using KDE desktop
3. use KUSR on the Konsole to change a user's password
4. try to log in as anyone OTHER than the changed user.

Actual Results: Subsequent logins fail for everyone, (including root), except 
the user whose password was changed.

Expected Results: not that!

BTW, I am downloading the 'null' beta now; I will retest in 48 hours or so, or 
when the download completes, whichever comes last.
