Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace

In Kubuntu Netbook, Karmic Beta.

When you try to enter your credentials in the KDM loging screen, typing a wrong password will just clean the password entry, but it won't give the user an error message.

Same for regular Kubuntu too.

The implication here is that positive feedback should be provided to the user, as many of us are accustomed to from other login systems, the various websites we visit daily, and so on.
