Description Alexander Larsson 2003-02-19 19:33:30 UTC
From bug 81210:

1) enter any username
2) start entering a password, press Caps Lock
3) enter a bad password
a "Password" field appears again, not "Username". Only way I know of to get
back to the "username" prompt is Ctrl-Alt-Backspace.

Cosmetic error. You can enter your username at one of the password dialogs.

Comment 2 George Lebl 2003-07-31 21:00:15 UTC
I can't quite reproduce this with neither stable nor devel gdm tree.

Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2003-08-12 12:42:35 UTC
fixed in rawhide at least.
