Just uploaded a wdm QA and looked at some of the remaining bug
reports. I am aware that this bug report is 2 years old, so you may no
longer use wdm.
Unless selected otherwise in wdm config file you need to authenticate
as root for 'Exitlogin' to work under wdm. I tested yesterday in a
squeeze box and worked as expected. Do you remember if you did it in
the same way?
If not, I guess after exitlogin failure you were hit by merged (and
#448647: wdm: Does not work a second time
#472703: wdm: Sometimes I cannot login, Enter doesn't work
leading to different login problems
Please provide these details, if you remember them,
Thanks in advance,
