Description David Miller 1999-04-13 08:19:06 UTC
The update to xscreensaver-2.0.9 in the current build
cases the password entry prompt to always fail.

To reproduce: lock screen, tap a key, try to enter user's
password, it will always fail

Arrgh. Everyone can duplicate this except me.
- are you using shadow passwords (I'm assuming yes)
- are you using NIS (I'm assuming no)
What version of PAM are you running?
It looks like we might have to turn the setuid bit back on.
