Thanks! I guess I just need to zypper dup for the fix.

Didn't work. Once locked, I cannot unlock the tty. There is no line
saying to type Enter to key in my passphrase like previously.

The following just keep being printed and scrolling:


The pts/0 is now locked by <username>.
Authentication failure.

You may want to check if vlock (or the actual program - standalone vlock
replaced /usb/bin/vlock by a script and the actual binary was moved to
/usr/sbin/vlock-main; not sure how this works with the kbd version) has
sgid for group shadow. I once opened a bug for this as I believe it
should be set out of the box but it was rejected with the explanation
that someone may use only e.g. LDAP for authentication with no local
database and then they wouldn't need sgid. (sigh)

If that doesn't help, I suppose you should either open a bug for this
issue or reuse bsc#1056449 (ther former seems more appropriate to me).

I'm sorry I can't check now as won't be at my Tumbleweed machine until
