Description David Jaša 2013-07-02 05:52:19 EDT
Description of problem:
gdm should refuse to shutdown/reboot when other users are logged in and their password isn't provided

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm-2.30.4-39.el6.x86_64
polkit-0.96-2.el6_0.1.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. either of:
  - log in as root on tty[2-6], switch to GDM
  - log in as some user in gdm, use fast user switching to get back to gdm
2. in gdm, initiate shutdown (or reboot)
3.

Actual results:
shutdown is happily initiated

Expected results:
- password of other logged in users should be requested
- if the password is incorrect, shutdown should be refused

Additional info:
* not sure about correct behaviour when suspend (acpi s3 or s4) is requested
* the requested behaviour is consistent with gnome behaviour
