Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

Hi, I'm kicked out of my session after pressing "Enter" in some window when using automatic login. No crash is detected. In details: I turn on my notebook, after a while I'm in gnome session, I start Terminal, write for example 'sudo apt-get update', press Enter and bang, I'm at gdm login.
Same happens also with evolution, I'm logged out after pressing Enter in keyring password dialog. I think this is similar to bug #396226, or has something to do with sudo and keyring.
I tried turning off automatic login, after start, when I press Enter on my name in login dialog, sometimes display turns black for a second. It seems like gdm is crashed and restarted. Then I press Enter again and system asks for my password.
