Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9794
xdm + pam_console doesnt remove lock
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
When logging in through xdm, pam_console.so correctly sets the ownership
and perms according to /etc/security/console.perms, but upon logout, the
/var/lock/console.lock and /var/lock/console/username files are not removed
so the next user to login isn't able to get console privs.
However, logging in through a virtual console seems to work correctly. The
lock files are created upon login, and removed upon logout, so successive
users are able to gain privileges as specified in console.perms.

This should be fixed in current rawhide packages.
