Description Philip Spencer 1999-12-20 20:57:59 UTC
GDM does not permit login when the user's password needs changing, as is
commonly the case when a user logs in for the first time after a random
initial password has been created for them by a system administrator. The
following patch fixes this problem by allowing gdm to let PAM prompt for
the new password:

Thanks for the patch - I've applied it, and it will be in gdm-2.0beta2-18 in
Rawhide very soon.
