With my current system, xlockmore will prompt me for a passphrase. If that
passphrase is correct, it will let me in. If that passphrase is incorrect,
it will tell me "Invalid login." ... and let me in.

While my network uses NIS, this is on my master NIS server, and thus should
be doing normal, local password lookups.


Build xlockmore, lock screen, test. This may be due to some quirk on my
own machine, but on this machine, at least, it's 100% reproducible and


As yet unknown.
