[Bug 661272] Re: changing user password causes hang in users-admin
bug append also in Xubuntu 14.04.03.
It is a very annoying bug for people who install distros with a generic
password. Once the pc is delivered, the first thing to do is to change
the password and a lot of time the user make a "fatal" mistake…
Some informations i gathered for now :
One can make errors like password too short ( len < 6 ) or not identical
( errors handled in src/users/user-password.c ). If a good one is given
after the change is done.
But if it is an other type of error ( tried password similar to the
current one, simple - errors that seemed to be handle in src/users/run-
password.c ), giving a good password after that just freeze users-admin.
