could not swithc user

Bug Description

Today, after switching several times between my admin acount and a normal user, I couldn't do it anymore. I had to log out from both users. It might be related, buy apparently, my laptop has a 'feature removed' (not seen in windows) wireless or my wireless drive is detecting both the model of usb wireless AND the chipset in the wireless. For some reason, it randomly logged in the WEP encryption with both wlans, (I had only connected one). I couldn't access the web, and this not being able to switch between users cropped up at the same time.

Jaunty 9.04 Gateway T series, Airlink 101 usb wireless dongle.

Hi gearond,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 367095

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
