Oh. I thought that XAUTHLOCALHOSTNAME was upstream in X. So no way the patch
can go upstream for gdm :/
(In reply to comment #23)
thing is that we set XAUTHLOCALHOSTNAME to localhost, so no need to
know the host name...
Not so good:
You need to add localhost to the Xauthority file to make this work.
Yes, that's what we do.
directories are exported over nfs and shared between different systems with
sessions running simultaneously you will get into trouble.
This is the whole point of having a unique host name.
So the right thing would be to just use the hostname we have during
authentication for the entry in Xauthority and for XAUTHLOCALHOSTNAME, even if
it changes afterwards?
If yes, then we'll have to update the patch (but for 11.3, I guess)
