Power Off: Another user is logged on

Is anyone else regularly being prompted for their password when shutting down their system, because ďanother user is logged onĒ? Iíve been seeing this quite frequently recently, although not every time. Iím the only one logged on (ďwhoĒ on another virtual console confirms that), but it seems to happen after other users have been logged on, or Iíve run certain root-privilege programs, like yumex. Iím still trying to make a 100% reproducible test case, but it looks like a bug somewhere. This is the default GNOME Shell / GDM, in case that matters to anyone.

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

I get it too.

I do something. Logout, then try to power off from the GDM then it tells me that somebody else is logged on.

I couldn't find a good test for it either, so I shelved it for now.

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

Yes, I get this prompt often also. Annoying ...

I find it is happening with gdm - the "ghost users" seem to be resolved activations via a login/logout and a dangling entry somewhere. Once it occurs it seems to hang around for a long time...

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

I'm getting it too, as I'm the only user on this machine I was wondering if it was connected with the fact that I have 2 e-maiil accounts set up in Thunderbird, and the system is ' seeing ' them as two users logged in, but I haven't tested that theory by logging on and NOT checking my e-mails yet.

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

I thought it might have something to do with adding my username to the Administrator group during installation.

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

I see that too, in my test VM installation. I do not have my username added to Admin though. This happens to me on an installation that is "as pure" as it gets - meaning, this system was installed using GNOME live CD and updated. No other program was installed. No shell extensions, rpmfusion, etc.

So yeah, very strange!

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

I usually shut down by typing "init 0" as root in a shell so I never see the error.

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=890827

Trying the fix of
su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing systemd-197-1.fc18.2'

Seems to work!

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

Edit: Bob seems to have found the better bug report.

Seems like the issue is reported here
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=869576

Make some noise (by adding yourself to the CC list)

Thanks bob and hmaarrfk. I tried searching Bugzilla, but for whatever reason my search terms didnít find those!

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

Thanks to those who've done the donkey work. I was having the same problem too. Am trying the updated systemd.

Systemd-197-1.fc18.2 from updates-testing does seem to have fixed the issue.

Re: Power Off: Another user is logged on

I may have spoken too soon! It’s definitely less frequent now, but I’ve been asked for my password on a couple of poweroffs since yesterday…
