Package: login
Version: 1:
Severity: normal

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---

When I try to login with an username with an accentued character, I get
"login incorrect" without I could type the password.
When I want to type again the username, I noticed that the accuentued
characters are no more printed correctly :
é is printed C)
è is printed C(
ê is printed C*
à is printed C (with a space after)
However I can login with su and with kdm 4.2.4 (sid)
although it was not possible with kdm 4.2.2 (testing)
