Package: fprintd
Version: 0.4.1-5-g73edad0-3
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

fprintd sometimes stops working. This happens very infrequently. From the
moment it happens, the fingerprint reader won't be activated any more for
unlocking the screen / logging in, and passwords have to be entered again.

Since it happens very infrequently, I don't have much more information, except
perhaps this line from /var/log/messages (though I'm not sure it occurred at
the time fprintd stopped working):

Apr 22 11:42:56 boulez kernel: [924858.156498] usb 1-1.3: usbfs: process 6247
(fprintd) did not claim interface 0 before use

When the problem occurs again, I will check if this message gets logged again.
