[Bug 216816] New: the gnome-screensaver will not unlock

Summary: the gnome-screensaver will not unlock
Product: SUSE Linux 10.1
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: GNOME
AssignedTo: bnc-team-gnome@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: wshackle@xxxxxxxxx

I have a system where users can log in but
if the screen locks it can never be unlocked.

I am not sure what has happened to the system
but it is clearly testing for something very strange instead of the
password and failing, without giving the user or even adding
something to /var/log/messages to give any clue as to what the problem

Each attempt to unlock a screen always produces two
entries in /var/log/messages one for the user and one for
root. But it always fails whether you give the user passwd or
the root password.

pam_authenticate(gnome-screensaver, shackle): Authentication failure
Oct 31 16:05:59 archimedes-304 unix2_chkpwd[12717]:
pam_authenticate(gnome-screensaver, root): Authentication failure

The same password works reliably when logging in
every other way, (console, GDM, ssh etc)

/etc/pam.d/gnome-screensaver is unmodified.
In fact
rpm -V pam pam_modules gnome-screensaver
shows no modified files for any of these packages.
