Description Alan Cox 2002-11-06 23:33:36 UTC
If a user exceeds their disk space/quota then attempts to create the lock files
fail next time they try to log in and the user is unable to log back into the
system to rectify the problem except by a text console.

In addition the config backend segfaulted, and all the terminal windows shrank
to a different font/size/layout.

Clearing disk space got the login working again and the terminals came back the
right size

I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.

This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now.  Are you still seeing the problem?
