The following have to be true:
1 - you have a 32-bit UID ( values greater than 65536 )
2 - you want to create a new X session
In /etc/X11/Xstartup you have to change the line containing 'sessreg'. Adding '-
L none' before the '-U $user' will enable login.
It seems that sessreg does not correctly write the lastlog entry for 32-bit
UID's. Adding the '-L none' disables it's attempt to write this entry.
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
