For shutdown from the logon screen the system wants the root's password, but it
is impossible to enter
There is an icon left downside, 2.nd from left on the logon screen shows a
switch symbol. Clicking on it the little window appears requesting the root's
password. But it is impossible to enter the password, as the field does not
show the characters entered, and after submitting the error message appears
with "wrong password".


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log off from any account.
2. Press the switch off icon
3. Try to enter the root's password and submit.
Actual Results:
Error message.


Expected Results:
Shutdown.

Guess (by Werner Fink): logon screen is KDM, the KDE Display Manager
By AK: I have installed KDE GUI and none other, so I believe it is KDM screen.
With a green chameleon on the right side, and username, password, domain in the
central part, from the top to the bottom. The icon concerned (meaning: ON-OFF)
is situated at the bottom.
