Description of problem:
Cancelling the gui password change box produces an 'Unknown Error' message popup.
A cosmetic annoyance.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Click cancel / close window button
Actual Results: Password dialog appears, vanishes, then an error dialog pops up
Expected Results: Error dialog should not be presented to the user.
I noticed something similar.
"Preferences"->"Password" , don't enter anything, click "Cancel" :
The dialog disappears and reappears. Click "Cancel" again, the same thing
happens. Click for the third time , then it finally goes away.
Not error dialog is displayed. I think I did this as root, not sure though.
bug 75834 says pressing OK without a password gives the same error message.
I couldn't replicate the behaviour described in comment #1.

This is present in Red Hat Linux 9, starting in usermode 1.67. It didn't happen
in the 1.65 version from phoebe beta 3. I don't think there was a publically
available 1.66 version, and have no idea if it worked there or not. :)
Should the Version for this bug be updated?
More precisely, with usermode 1.65, you get a "The password you typed is
invalid. Please try again", which is also not really correct for having clicked
If you press OK without entering a password, it tries to authenticate using a
blank password. This is probably actually correct.
Also, it's not merely the password change applet -- it's anything usermode is
The error-on-cancel problem appears fixed in usermode 1.68 in rawhide.

Yes, it seems to be fixed. I can't reproduce in Fedora Core.

unless someone objects, i'm closing this -- it works in FC2 no problem.
