           Summary: Troubles with BSDAUTH (cannot use non-default login
           Product: xorg
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: App/xdm

        ReportedBy: pierre at droids-corp.org

With BSDAUTH, it is not possible to use a login class different from the default
one. This is due to a call to auth_call() without specifying the login class.

This bug is really easy to correct : in xc/programs/xdm/greeter/greeter.c,
function verify(), the call to auth_call() :

	auth_call(as, path, style, "-s", "response", greet->name, 
		  (void *)NULL);

must be replaced with

	auth_call(as, path, style, "-s", "response", greet->name, 
		  lc->lc_class, (void *)NULL);

This fix has been tested and works properly under OpenBSD 3.5.
