Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 849333
bad handling of mobile broadband connections devices while having multiple user sessions opened
Last modified: 2013-08-01 05:27:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When you plug an usb mobile broadband device you will be required to insert the PIN code.
If you have multiple user sessions opened (user 1, user 2, etc.) while using a mobile broadband devices (usb device in my case) and for some reasons you have to unplug the device and re-plug it, you probably will be prompted for PIN code not on the active user, but on the other session. So you will have to switch user to enter the PIN code.
2) After having entered the PIN code and got back to the correct user, sometimes you will not see in plasma network manager the mobile broadband connection you have to click onto to instaurate the connection
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the computer and login into "user 1"
2.Connect to the internet with your USB mobile broadband device.
3.Open a new session of "user 2"
4.Switch back to user 1.
5.Unplug the USB mobile broadband device and re-plug it.
6.See that the prompt for PIN code is not on active user session (user 1)
I attached a screenshot of user permissions of my connection

This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
