Bug Description

Using ltsp-pam's pam_sshauth.py hook, "su USER" doesn't work unless the user has already logged in via console or lightdm.

Apparently, some applicaitons need to know the user already exists.

Hmmm. Not sure if this one can be fixed, since the user geometry simply won't exist on the thin client until the user logs in. I'd suspect if you wanted this functionality on the thin client, you'd have to implement LDAP auth.
