Hi everibody

From time to time, when logging in, after typing my password, the machine sends
the following error message (translated): Your session did not even last 10 seconds,

The message waits for acknoledgement: I must click on some "OK" button. I am then
again offered the login screen (GDM), and must repeat the login process: username
and password.

When I initially installed VL one year (?) ago, this incident occurred seldom.
Now, as if my OS had aged ( Huh ), it occurs more and more often, to the point that it is not
uncommon to make three or four attempts  Tongue  before being logged in finally.

My son, who runs VL on a completely different machine, made a similar observation.

Since I was never locked out, I do not consider it to be a serious problem, and never
posted on the subject. Now, as it occurs everyday more often, it is becoming exceedingly
irritating  Angry   specially when in a hurry !

Did somebody observe this strange behaviour ? Is there a cure, apart from re-install
or suffer ?
