Comment 1 Klaus Heinrich Kiwi 2010-07-06 12:06:00 UTC
Package: xorg-x11-xauth-1:1.0.2-7.fc12
Architecture: x86_64
OS Release: Fedora release 12 (Constantine)

How to reproduce
1. Install nomachine nxserver
2. Log in once. Log-off
3. Try logging back in, which fails with the above sigsegv. Remove ~/.Xauthority* and ~/.nx to get it to work again

This bug report used the nxserver downloaded from, but I was able to reproduce the issue with freenx-server from fedora.

freenx-server in general is very poorly documented, and wont 'just work' unfortunately.

FYI, I have SELinux disabled in my system.

Hm, I belive this is a duplicate of #556739, but feel free to revert otherwise.
