that was in your message date 22.02.2007 14:46 on my computer.

So I understood *no password at all* .

Now that you're saying clearly that you want an option in GDM to not 
prompt for a password for some users, I can understand it and I think it 
can be useful. A case has happened to me. I sometimes get some visit at 
home from people that would like to see their email. so I had to set up 
a account for them but it would have been useful to not have a gdm 
password on this one.

So my mistake. At the beginning of that thread I had understood well the 
proposal, and you'll notice I didn't answer till that sentence of you .
