** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver
  
  When I try to unlock the screen, my password is rejected, although it is
  correct.
  
  /var/log/auth.log:
  
  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).
+ 
+ edit:
+ I installed amd64 version of 6.10 and unlocking worked. But a new installation of the i386 version resulted in the same problem (I kept my home directory both times).
