hello list,

i've enabled autologin in gettytab which works well.
When I'm automatically logged in as a user and start a WM (icewm) via
startx and later logout to the shell, then the shell gets stuck. This
does only happen if I'm autologged in as a user. With root everything
works fine.

I found out, that if I just su down to root and come back, I can also
properly log out of icewm.
It also suffices, if I just "login -f myusername" or "su myusername"
and then startx and logout.

Any ideas how to workaround or fix this ?
