Description Warren Togami 2005-09-19 04:02:46 UTC
GNOME login is stuck after ssh-askpass because gnome-ssh-askpass process becomes
defunct.  This seems to be the same behavior as Bug #132340 where IIIMF broke
gnome-ssh-askpass.  This behavior began after the immodule language list removal
of Bug #167088.

Produce Procedure:
[warren@ibmlaptop ~]$ cat .Xclients-default
ssh-add < /dev/null
exec gnome-session

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2005-09-22 01:43:33 UTC
Can you explain in more detail how to reproduce this?

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-09-22 19:21:16 UTC
1) Have a ssh key with passphrase
2) Create ~/.Xclients-default containing the above two lines.
3) Login to GNOME session using en_US.UTF-8
4) See it get stuck before displaying gnome-ssh-askpass.

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-09-23 04:29:00 UTC
Hmm after the latest FC5 upgrade this problem went away.  Closing NOTABUG for
now, will reopen if I see it again.

Comment 4 Warren Togami 2005-09-23 15:20:44 UTC
I was wrong, it happens after I enter the ssh passphrase.  The dialog disappears
and it is stuck there forever with gnome-ssh-askpass defunct.  I need to kill
ssh-add for it to begin to run GNOME.

Comment 5 Warren Togami 2005-12-20 19:38:38 UTC
A more recent version of SCIM no longer enables IM in GTK+ password dialogs, so
there are now two things preventing this from happening in gnome-ssh-askpass.  I
suppose this is only a symptom of the debug prints going to stdout combined with
the crap redirection used by askpass.  Hopefully nothing else is affected by
this.  So closing...
