Description CW Möller 2005-09-20 04:16:43 UTC
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.
