Bug#277427: Bug still present, more information
I unarchived and reopened the bug, since I stumbled upon it. I'm using
current debian stable (lenny).
I'm using pam_ldap on common-auth. The passwords are not meant to be
changed in workstations, so I tried to disable it by setting pam_deny on
However kdm doesn't seem to obey this, but brings to password change
dialog for user whos password is about to be expired (or has expired).
Then it starts very weird behavior, cursor keeps going between fields
like tab being pressed down constantly. It doesn't accept any input, nor
cancel button can't be pressed. Only way out is ctrl-alt-backspace.
This bug might be also present with any authentication backend when
password changing is disabled, or can't be done. Will test that later.

auth requisite pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 1000 quiet
auth optional pam_group.so use_first_pass
