Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

When I try to unlock the screen, my password is rejected, although it is


Nov 17 01:07:43 localhost unix_chkpwd[27108]: check pass; user unknown
Nov 17 01:07:43 localhost gnome-screensaver-dialog: (pam_unix) authentication failure; logname= uid=1000 euid=1000 tty=:0.0 ruser= rhost=  user=maser

I'm using Ubuntu 6.10 (although I had this problem with 6.06, too).

** Affects: gnome-screensaver (Ubuntu)
