[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#718497: lightdm-gtk-greeter: Last PAM error message not showing

Package: lightdm-gtk-greeter
Version: 1.6.0-1
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream patch

Dear Maintainer,

Whenever PAM fails the message: "Incorrect password, please try again"
appears ignoring the real message from the PAM, which might be
e.g. "access denied". This of course, is very confusing to users who
thinks they've forgotten their passwords.

The attached patch displays the "Incorrect password" message only if
there's no other message displayed.
